Current Expected Credit Loss Standards (CECL): what you need to know

The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) has introduced a new impairment model, commonly known as CECL (Current Expected Credit Losses). It’s applicable to the U.S. GAAP based countries such as the United States, Israel, Japan (limited) and Switzerland (optional).

It represented a major shift from the existing incurred loss model and leaves institutions facing a number of new challenges:

  • Instead of recognizing losses when the contract’s carrying amount is not recoverable, CECL requires measurement of expected losses over the entire contractual lifetime of a loan
  • It must take into account a reasonable and supportable forecast of the future
  • Must encompass all facets of the myriad processes
  • All processes should be transparent, efficient and rerunnable
  • Existing models will need to recalibrate or new CECL models developed, with matters being especially complex for institutions that operate across borders.

To do this effectively, an analytical solution is required that comprehensively addresses the particular methodologies and calculations outlined in CECL accounting.
