ASU 2018-15, Capitalizing Implementation Costs

Intangibles – Goodwill and Other – Internal-Use software

(Subtopic 350-40) Customer’s Accounting for Implementation Costs Incurred in a Cloud Computing Arrangement that is a Service Contract

ASU 2018-15 is the most recent installment of the FASB effort to provide guidance for one of the fastest growing business entities. Most companies today are customers of an increasing number and variety of cloud computing service providers. In April 2015, ASU 201505 provided guidance on accounting for fees paid in cloud computing arrangements. 

ASU 2018-15 amends the accounting for implementation, setup and other upfront costs and applies to entities that are a customer in a hosting arrangement. These amendments align the implementation cost capitalization requirements for service arrangements with those for implementation costs incurred to develop or acquire internal-use software licenses.
