Accordingly, each chapter is structured as a stand-alone chapter, providing you with all the information you''ll need on a specific topic. The majority of chapters consist of the following parts: 1. Executive Summary. This section provides a clear and concise overview of the specific financial statement topic. 2. Authoritative Accounting Literature. This section provides reference to the relevant FASB ASC Topic. 3. Disclosure and Key Presentation Requirements. This section provides a detailed listing of (a) the disclosure requirements (FASB ASC Section 50) and (b) those key presentation requirements (FASB ASC Section 45) that are relevant to enhance compliance with and better understand the disclosure requirements. This section also provides specific references to the FASB ASC paragraphs that prescribe the specific disclosure or key presentation requirement. Some of the items included in this section do not refer to any specific authoritative literature. Nevertheless, the disclosure or presentation items they address are considered informative for users of the financial statements and usually are disclosed or presented. These disclosures or presentation items are generally accepted by accountants and auditors and, accordingly, are referenced as "Generally accepted practice" in this section. 4. Examples of Financial Statement Disclosures. This section contains specific examples of disclosures that cover different situations, circumstances, assumptions, and so on. Unless specifically indicated, the examples provided assume that the most recent financial statements presented are for the year ended December 31, 20X2.
