GASB No. 65

Items Previously Reported as Assets and Liabilities


Background

Background

  • Certain items previously identified as assets and liabilities are not really considered to be assets or liabilities

  • The use of the concept of deferred inflows and outflows was established to handle these items

  • This statement establishes those items which are now to be recast as deferred inflows and outflows


Deferred inflows outflows

Deferred Inflows/Outflows

  • Previously restricted only to use in hedging and Service Concession arrangements

  • Deferred Outflows

    • A consumption of net position that is applicable to a future accounting period (e.g. dfd loss on refunding)

    • Shown as a separate category below assets

  • Deferred Inflows

    • An acquisition of net position that is applicable to a future accounting period (e.g. Unavailable revenue in a governmental fund)

    • Shown as a separate category below liabilities


Areas of specific guidance

Areas of Specific Guidance

  • Refunding of Debt

  • Nonexchange transactions

  • Sales of Future Revenues

  • Debt issuance costs

  • Leases

  • Acquisition costs related to insurance activities

  • Lending activities

  • Mortgage Banking activities

  • Regulated Operations

  • Revenue recognition in governmental funds

  • Use of the term Deferred

  • Major Fund criteria - effects


Specific guidance

Specific Guidance

  • Debt refunding

    • Gain or Loss from a refunding resulting in a defeasance

      • Deferred Inflow – Gain

      • Deferred Outflow - Loss

  • Nonexchange transactions

    • Deferred inflows when resources are received or reported as a receivable before:

      • The period for which property taxes are levied

      • The period when resources are required to be used or first permitted

    • Deferred outflows are reported for resources received before time requirements are met, but eligibility requirements have been met


Specific guidance continued

Specific Guidance (continued)

  • Debt Issuance costs

    • Report as a period expense when incurred, no longer amortized over the life of the debt

  • Sale of Future Revenues

    • Transferor reports a deferred inflow for resources in both the government-wide and fund financial statements

    • Only exception is found in GASB 48, para. 14 and has to do with revenue not previously recognized due to uncertainty of inability to measure

    • Intra-entity sales - recognize as deferred inflow and outflow until all revenue recognition criteria met(GASB 48, para. 15)


Specific guidance continued1

Specific Guidance (continued)

  • Leases

    • Operating lease – lessor

      • Record initial direct costs (acquisition, legal, etc) as a period cost

    • Sale/-Leaseback transaction

      • Gain/loss on sale/leaseback should be recorded as either a deferred inflow or outflow, as applicable

  • Revenue recognition in Governmental Funds

    • Revenue not recognized because of availability criteria should be reported as deferred inflows (e.g. property taxes)


Specific guidance continued2

Specific Guidance (continued)

  • Use of the term Deferred in GASB financial statements

    • Limited only to use in connection with “Deferred Inflows” and “Deferred Outflows”

  • Major Fund Criteria

    • Utilize deferred Outflows as part of assets and deferred inflows as part of liabilities in the calculations in determining major funds

Gasb no 70

GASB No. 70

Accounting and Financial Reporting for Nonexchange Financial Guarantees


Background1

Background

  • Investors are looking for more credit enhancements and assurances on obligations

    • Minimize the possibility of nonpayment

  • Government often provide guarantees and receive guarantees for free

    • Belief nonpayment is not likely

  • Currently, a liability is recorded when

    • It is probable the government will be required to pay and amount can be reasonability estimated


Scope and applicability1

Scope and Applicability

  • Government provides a financial guarantee as a nonexchange transaction

  • Government receives a financial guarantee as a nonexchange transaction

  • Key considerations

    • Three legally separate entities (component units qualify)

    • Not deemed guarantees for this statement

      • Withholding or garnishing revenues

      • Pledges of future revenues

      • Joint-and-several obligations


Three legally separate entities

Three Legally Separate Entities


Government as the grantor

Government as the Grantor

  • Assess the issuer’s ability to pay using qualitative factors

  • If the government is more likely than not required to pay the issuer’s debt, then “book it”

    • More than 50% likelihood

  • Book -

    • The discounted present value of expected cash flows as the result of the guarantee, or

    • If cash flows are within a range, the discounted present value of the minimum expected cash flows (low part of the range)


Qualitative factors

Qualitative Factors

  • Bankruptcy or financial reorganizations

  • Breach of debt contract

    • Covenants

    • Coverage ratios

    • Default

  • Other financial difficulty indicators

    • Loss of major revenue source

    • Debt holder concessions

    • Using earmarked funding to pay debt


Book it

“Book It”

  • Journal entry

    • DR: Expense/Expenditures

    • CR: Nonexchange Financial Guarantee

  • Government-wide Financial Statements, and

  • Fund Financial Statement to the extent the liability is normally expected to be liquidated with expendable available financial resources.


Government as a guarantor to a group

Government as a Guarantor to a Group

  • You could analyze individually, or

  • You could analyze as a group using qualitative factor of the group -

    • Historical trends

    • Economic factors

    • Etc.

  • May book a liability similar to an allowance on bad debt, historical trends


Practical timing issue

Practical Timing Issue

  • The process should be ongoing and the books and records should be adjusted when the government becomes more likely than not to pay the debt of the issuer.


Disclosures

Disclosures


Government as issuer

Government as Issuer

  • Footnote disclosure explaining the guarantee

  • If the government is required to repay the guarantor, then the liability should be reclassified as a liability to guarantor when the guarantor begins to pay the debt.

  • If the government is legally released from the debt, a revenue is recognized for guarantor’s assumption of the liability.


Disclosure

Disclosure


Intra entity

Intra-Entity

  • Primary government guarantees a blended component unit’s debt

  • Blended component unit guarantees a primary government's debt

  • Blended component unit guarantees another blended component unit

  • A receivable should be booked in the amount of the liability booked by the guarantor


Gasb no 68

GASB No. 68

Accounting and Financial Reporting for Pension Plans


Background2

Background

  • Part of the effort which goes back to GASB 34 to make government statements more usable, comparable and on par with the corporate world

    • Investors understand full accrual accounting and get confused with multiple levels of government reporting

  • Gives a better perspective as to both financial position and financial condition


Scope and applicability2

Scope and Applicability

  • Applies to:

    • Employers in single-employer and agent multiple-employer defined benefit plans

    • Employers in cost-sharing plans

    • Special funding situations

      • One government makes payments on behalf of another

    • Employers in defined contribution plans


Defined benefit pensions

Defined Benefit Pensions

  • Employer liability

    • Current: Difference between the annual required contribution (ARC) and actual contributions = Net pension obligation

      • Only record a liability if required funding not made

    • New: Difference between the total pension liability and the fiduciary net position = Net pension liability

      • Record net liability of the governmental entity

    • Measured as of a date no earlier than the end of the employer’s prior fiscal year (measurement date)


Defined benefit plans continued

Defined Benefit Plans (continued)

  • Changes in the pension liability –

    • Service cost, interest on the pension liability and changes in benefit terms

      • Recorded as pension expense immediately

    • Changes in economic and demographic assumptions and differences between economic and demographic assumptions and actual experience

      • Amortized over a closed period equal to the average remaining service period for plan members

      • Current portion recorded as pension expense

      • Remaining portion recorded as deferred outflows or deferred inflows of resources


Defined benefit plans continued1

Defined Benefit Plans (continued)

  • Changes in the pension liability (continued) –

    • Differences between expected and actual rates of investment returns

      • Amortized over a closed 5 year period (including current period)

      • Current portion recorded as pension expense

      • Remaining portion recorded as deferred outflows or deferred inflows of resources

  • Employer contributions made subsequent to the measurement date of the net pension liability are recorded as deferred outflows of resources


Defined benefit plans continued2

Defined Benefit Plans (continued)

  • Actuarial valuations

    • Required at least every two years

    • Total pension liability should be determined by

      • An actuarial valuation as of the measurement date which must be within 1 year and 1 day of the report date or

      • The use of update procedures to roll forward from the actuarial valuation to the measurement date no more than 30 months and 1 day before employers year end

    • Entry age method only

      • Consistency –multiple methods no longer accepted

      • No tie to actuarial method used for funding

      • Service cost determined as a percentage of pay

Projection of benefit payments

Projection of Benefit Payments

  • Projections Include:

    • Automatic cost of living adjustments (COLAs) and other automatic retroactive benefit changes

    • Ad hoc COLAs and ad hoc retroactive benefit changes – substantively automatic

    • Projected future salary increases – if benefit formula is based on future levels

    • Projected future service credits (when determining probability of eligibility for benefits and when formula is based on years of service)


New blended discount rate

New Blended Discount Rate

  • Single rate reflective of:

    • Long-term expected rate of return to extent plan net position for specified source is:

      • Projected sufficient to make benefit payments

      • Expected to be invested using long-term investment strategy

  • Otherwise, index rate for a tax-exempt 20-year GO rated AA/Aa (or equivalent) or higher


Example scenario discount rate

Example Scenario- Discount Rate

  • Current Situation

    • 8% discount rate, same as historical rate of return

    • 75% funded plan

    • 20 year GO rate is 4%

Cost sharing plans

Cost Sharing Plans

  • Cost Sharing Employers

    • Current:

      • Liability recorded only if the actual employer contribution is less than annual required contribution

      • Expense is equal to annual required contribution

    • New:

      • Liability is equal to the employers’ proportionate share of the total net pension liability of all participating employers

        • Will now allow readers to determine overall liabilities currently not easily determinable

        • More pressure to adequately fund

      • Expense is equal to the employer’s proportionate share of the pension expense of all participating employers

      • Both liability and expense are reported as of the date reported by the plan – No need to adjust/rollforward to actual report date of the government


Cost sharing plans continued

Cost Sharing Plans (continued)

  • Employer’s recognize their proportionate share of collective:

    • Net pension liability

    • Pension expense

    • Deferred outflows of resources

    • Deferred inflows of resources

  • This will provide audit challenges


Special funding situations

Special Funding Situations

  • Nonemployer entity legally responsible for making contributions directly to a pension plan for the employees of another entity and either:

    • The amount of contributions for which the nonemployer entity legally is responsible is not dependent upon one or more events unrelated to pensions

      or

    • The nonemployer is the only entity with a legal obligation to make contributions directly to the pension plan

  • Nonemployer contributor accounting patterned on accounting for employers in cost-sharing plans


Defined contribution plans1

Defined Contribution Plans

  • No significant changes

  • Expense – Amount of contributions (employee and employer) to the employee accounts, net of forfeited amounts

  • Liability – Difference between the amount of the expense recorded and amount paid to the plan

    Pension Transition for Contributions Made Subsequent to the Measurement Date


    Background4

    Background

    • GASB 68 requires:

      • Recognition of a net pension liability measured as of a date no earlier than the end of its prior fiscal year

        • If a contribution is made between the measurement date and the end of the reporting period, its recognized as a deferred outflow of resources

      • Recognition of deferred outflows and inflows of resources for other pension-related events

        • Differences arising between expected and actual experience in relation to economic and/or demographic factors

        • Effects of changes of assumptions about future economic or demographic factors

        • Differences between projected and actual investment earnings


    Background continued

    Background (continued)

    • At transition, if it’s not practical to determine the amounts of all deferred inflows and outflows of resources related to pensions, no beginning balances for deferred inflows and outflows be reported

    • Potential for significant misstatement of beginning net position and subsequent expense in accrual based statements if the employer does not recognize its contributions made after the measurement date of the beginning net pension liability as deferred outflows of resources at transition


    Summary

    Summary

    • When it’s not practical to determine all amounts of deferred inflows and outflows of resources related to pensions, GASB 71 states:

      • Employers should recognize a beginning deferred outflow of resources for pension contributions, if any made subsequent to the measurement date of the beginning net pension liability

      • No beginning balances for other deferred inflows and outflows of resources related to pensions should be recognized
