ASC 350 Goodwill Valuation

Intangible Asset Impairment Testing

As with anything in business, there are always rules, requirements, and regulations which you must follow. This is especially true when it comes to financial transactions.

Goodwill and other intangible assets are typically analyzed annually for impairment, in accordance with ASC 350. There are certain procedures which are set, and rules that must be complied with. You may need the assistance from an experienced business valuation expert to guide you through this complex valuation process.

Call Gibraltar Business Valuations at (855) 231-1401 for more information.

Is Impairment Testing Required?

Our team of professionals at Gibraltar Business Valuations can assist you in understanding the way that impairment testing works and ensure that you are in full compliance.

In some cases, you will only be required to undergo brief analysis, known as a qualitative assessment, once a year; however, there are some cases where you may need to have your assets tested more frequently.

There are a few cases where your intangible assets may be required to undergo testing:

  • The loss of key personnel in your company
  • Unanticipated competition for your business
  • An adverse assessment or action by a regulator
  • A significant change in the business climate
