Power & Utilities
Accounting, Financial, Reporting and Tax Update
We are pleased to present our 13th annual Accounting, Financial Reporting, and Tax Update for the power and utilities (P&U) industry. Our industry continues to face changing markets, new legislation, environmental initiatives, regulatory pressures, and emerging businesses and technologies. This publication discusses accounting, tax, and regulatory matters that P&U entities will need to consider as a result of these changes, including updates to SEC, FASB, IFRS, and tax guidance, and focuses on specialized industry accounting topics that frequently affect rate-regulated entities. New to this year’s publication are sections on accounting and reporting considerations related to (1) carve-out financial statements and (2) the FASB’s and IASB’s new revenue standard. Also included is a section on accounting and reporting concerns specific to renewable energy.
To help P&U entities understand and address potential challenges in the accounting for and reporting of financial instruments, leases, and other topics on which the FASB has issued proposed standards, this publication discusses these proposals and highlights nuances that could affect our industry.
We hope you find this update a useful resource, and we welcome your feedback. As always, we encourage you to contact your Deloitte team or any of the Deloitte specialists in Appendix C for additional information and assistance.
