Note 3: Recent Accounting Standards
Accounting Standards Adopted
Deferred Tax Classification. In the first quarter of 2016, we elected to early adopt an amended standard requiring that we classify all deferred tax assets and liabilities as non-current on the consolidated condensed balance sheet instead of separating deferred taxes into current and non-current. The amended standard was adopted on a retrospective basis. As a result of the adoption, we made the following adjustments to the consolidated condensed 2015 balance sheet: a $2.0 billion decrease to current deferred tax assets, a $430 million increase to non-current deferred tax assets, a $21 million decrease to current deferred tax liabilities, and a decrease of $1.6 billion to non-current deferred tax liabilities.
Business Combinations. In the first quarter of 2016, we adopted an amended standard requiring that we recognize the effect on earnings of any adjustments identified during the measurement period after an acquisition in the same period the adjustment is identified, as opposed to the prior standard which required material adjustments be retrospectively adjusted. The standard did not have a significant impact on our consolidated condensed financial statements.
Accounting Standards Not Yet Adopted
Revenue Recognition. In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued a new standard to achieve a consistent application of revenue recognition within the U.S., resulting in a single revenue model to be applied by reporting companies under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. Under the new model, recognition of revenue occurs when a customer obtains control of promised goods or services in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. In addition, the new standard requires that reporting companies disclose the nature, amount, timing, and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers. On July 9, 2015, the FASB agreed to delay the effective date by one year; accordingly, the new standard is effective for us beginning in the first quarter of 2018 and we expect to adopt it at that time. The new standard is required to be applied retrospectively to each prior reporting period presented or retrospectively with the cumulative effect of initially applying it recognized at the date of initial application. We have not yet selected a transition method nor have we determined the impact of the new standard on our consolidated condensed financial statements.
Financial Instruments - Classification and Measurement. In January 2016, the FASB issued changes to the accounting for financial instruments that primarily affect equity investments, financial liabilities under the fair value option, and the presentation and disclosure requirements. This standard is effective for us beginning in the first quarter of 2018; certain provisions allow for early adoption and we are evaluating whether we will do so. The new standard should be applied by means of a cumulative-effect adjustment to the balance sheet as of the beginning of the fiscal year of adoption, with certain exceptions. We have not yet determined the impact of the new standard on our consolidated condensed financial statements.
Financial Instruments - Credit Losses. In June 2016, the FASB issued a new standard requiring measurement and recognition of expected credit losses on certain types of financial instruments. It also modifies the impairment model for available-for-sale debt securities and provides for a simplified accounting model for purchased financial assets with credit deterioration since their origination. This standard is effective for us in the first quarter of 2020; early adoption is permitted beginning in the first quarter of 2019 and we are evaluating whether we will early adopt. It is required to be applied on a modified-retrospective approach with certain elements being adopted prospectively. We have not yet determined the impact of the new standard on our consolidated condensed financial statements.
Leases. In February 2016, the FASB issued a new lease accounting standard requiring that we recognize lease assets and liabilities on the balance sheet. This standard is effective for us beginning in the first quarter of 2019; early adoption is permitted and we are evaluating whether we will do so. The new standard must be adopted using a modified retrospective transition which includes certain practical expedients. We have not yet determined the impact of the new standard on our consolidated condensed financial statements.
Shared-Based Compensation. In March 2016, the FASB issued an accounting standard update aimed at simplifying the accounting for share-based payment transactions. Included in the update are modifications to the accounting for income taxes upon vesting or settlement of awards, employer tax withholding on shared-based compensation, forfeitures, and financial statement presentation of excess tax benefits. This standard is effective for us beginning in the first quarter of 2017 and we will adopt it at that time. We have not yet determined the impact of the new standard on our consolidated condensed financial statements.
