RSM Guide to accounting for Business Combinations

RSM US GAAP Guide to accounting for Business Combinations (fourth edition), was developed to help assist middle market companies in accounting for business combinations under Topic 805, Business Combinations, of the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (FASB) Accounting Standards Codification. Applying the accounting model in Topic 805 is no small undertaking given some of the complexities embedded in that model (e.g., the accounting for contingent consideration requires initially measuring it at fair value, appropriately classifying it as either an asset, liability or equity and subsequently adjusting it to fair value if it is classified as an asset or liability). To help alleviate this complexity, RSM guide explains the accounting for a business combination in plain English and illustrates many aspects of this accounting with detailed examples and illustrations.
