and Assistance Service
The budgeting support and assistance outsource service will help facilitate the credit union’s budgeting process by utilizing a balance sheet and income statement model. A senior analyst will work with the credit union in developing a budgeted balance sheet and the model will generate budget interest income and interest expense. This will then be utilized to derive the completed balance sheet and income statement budget.
CECL is a new standard for Allowance for Loan and Lease Loss (ALLL). In June 2016, FASB issued the current expected credit losses (CECL) standard – ASU 2016-13 to replace the “incurred loss” accounting model with CECL for the recognition and measurement of credit losses for loans. A similar new standard will also be implemented for investment securities.
The new standard requires estimates of the lifetime expected credit losses at the time a loan is booked.
The new standard will not be effective until January 1, 2021 financial statements but credit unions need to start preparing their data now.
