The proposal stems from questions about whether the requirements to disclose the date that the financial statements are issued could conflict with some SEC guidance, according to FASB.
FASB has proposed amendments that would remove the requirement for an entity that files or furnishes financial statements with the SEC to disclose a date in both the originally issued and restated financial statements.
The board also has clarified that if the financial statements have been restated, then an entity that does not file financial statements with the SEC would disclose both the original date the financial statements were issued or available to be issued and the date the restated financial statements were issued or available to be issued.
Those proposed changes would remove potential conflicts with the SEC literature, FASB says in the exposure draft.
Comments on the proposal are due Jan. 28.
