CECL Model Changes: Life of Loan Concept
The Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (FASB’s) Current Expected Credit Loss (CECL) model represents a transition in the way institutions will account for losses. In comparison to current guidance, the largest proposed change is the shift to accounting for expected losses over the entire life of the loan. In order to perform more robust, forward-looking calculations, bankers will need access to loan-level data.
Under the proposed model, institutions must calculate all probable and estimable losses that are expected to be incurred throughout the loan’s entire life instead of just what has already been incurred as of the calculation date (as in the current model).
