FASB invites input on agenda
Are you interested in US reporting standards? The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) has published an Invitation to Comment (ITC) seeking feedback on its future standard-setting agenda which is open for comment until 22 September 2021.
The ITC is part of an ongoing consultation and draws on earlier feedback on the topics the board should address.
