PwC's accounting podcast

Jul 20 2021 • 37 mins

Our Full disclosure podcast series brings you back to the basics on all things related to financial statement presentation and disclosure, from the top of the financial statements through the footnotes.

This week we focus on the presentation and disclosure requirements for other assets—specifically property, plant and equipment, inventory, intangible assets, goodwill, and capitalized software. Mike Coleman and Matt Sabatini, PwC National Office partners, are back in the guest seats to share some helpful insights with our host, Heather Horn.

Topics include:

  • 1:29 - Property, plant and equipment (PPE). Matt explains the presentation and disclosure requirements for PPE and highlights key areas of focus for analysts.
  • 8:29 - Inventory. Mike highlights the SEC’s and FASB’s presentation and disclosure rules, including where they differ depending on the costing method applied.
  • 15:37 - Intangible assets and goodwill. Matt and Mike take us through the presentation and disclosure requirements for intangibles and goodwill, whether acquired through a business combination or an asset acquisition, and the related impairment assessments.
  • 22:56 - Capitalized software. Mike breaks down the disclosure rules for capitalized software for both the sellers and buyers of internal and external use software.
