Members of the FASB TRG for credit losses reached general agreement on three implementation issues and may revisit two others. They generally agreed that entities can elect to use a discount rate adjusted for expected prepayments to determine the allowance for credit losses and can elect to maintain existing pools of purchased credit impaired assets at adoption or on an ongoing basis. They also generally agreed that entities should consider the cash flows of the assets underlying a beneficial interest, including expected prepayments, to determine whether the guidance on purchased financial assets with credit deterioration applies. The TRG may revisit questions about how to determine the life of a credit card receivable and how to forecast troubled debt restructurings.
