In response to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2020-05, which provides a one-year deferral of the effective dates of ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, and ASC 842, Leases.  

ASU 2020-05 delays the effective date of ASC 606 for all privately-held companies and private not-for-profit organizations that have not yet issued their financial statements or made their financial statements available to be issued to annual periods, beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim reporting periods within annual reporting periods, beginning after December 15, 2020. 

ASU 2020-05 also delays the effective date of ASC 842 for all privately-held companies and private not-for-profit organizations to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, and interim periods within fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2022. Public not-for-profit organizations (those with public conduit debt) that have not yet issued their financial statements or made their financial statements available to be issued may implement ASC 842 to fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those fiscal years.

Early adoption is permitted for ASC 606 and ASC 842.

Entities should consider where they are in the revenue standards implementation process and the costs associated with deferring ASC  606 when determining if it’s in the best interest of the entity to early adopt or not to early adopt ASC 606.

ASU 2020-05 did not change the effective dates of ASU 2018-08, Not-for-Profit Entities (Topic 958): Clarifying the Scope and the Accounting Guidance for Contributions Received and Contributions Made. The effective dates for ASU 2018-08 are annual periods beginning after December 15, 2018, for all private not-for-profit organizations that are resource recipients, and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2019, for all private not-for-profit organizations that are resource providers.
