The vesting provisions should be reviewed to ensure that the full funding date is properly set, as this date is essential to the assessment of liability. Since PPA 12 requires that the current value of advance payments be accounted for until the full promotion date, institutions should also consider changing market interest rates to adequately measure deferred compensation liabilities. Therefore, in order to meet aPB 12, agencies believe that institutions should regularly review their estimates of the expected future benefits under the IPI and the discount rates used to calculate the present value of advance payments and, if necessary, revise estimates and rates. RC-G Calendar, Item 4.b, “Deferred Compensation Liabilities” Below you will find references to CCO bulletins, inter-institutional notes and federal registry reports on accounting issues. The table below summarizes a systematic and rational method of recognizing expenses and liabilities under the deferred compensation agreement: reserve banks are invited to distribute the letter SR and inter-institutional advice attached to member banks, holding banks and foreign banking organizations overseen by the Federal Reserve, as well as supervisory and audit staff. Please refer questions to Arthur Lindo, Project Manager (202) 452-2695, Douglas Carpenter, Financial Supervisory Analyst (202) 452-2205, or Salomé Tinker, Senior Financial Analyst (202) 452-3034, in the Accounting Sections of Disclosure and Regulatory Report. For each period following the date of the agreement, the entity would adjust the deferred compensation obligation for the interest component and any benefit payments. In addition, the Company would reassess the assumptions used to determine the expected future benefits under the agreement and the discount rate used to calculate the present value of expected benefits for each period following the start of the agreement and, if necessary, revise assumptions and interest rates. Example 1: Total eligibility at the beginning of the contract A company enters into a deferred compensation agreement with a 55-year-old employee who has worked for the company for five years.
The agreement provides that in exchange for past and future services and for the employee who works as a consultant two years after retirement, the company will pay the employee an annual benefit of $20,000, which begins on the first anniversary of the employee`s retirement. At the beginning of the agreement, the worker is fully entitled to deferred compensation and counselling services are not material. The latest expected credit losses (CECL) The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued a new standard for accounting for credit losses in June 2016. The new accounting standard introduces the CECL methodology for estimating credit loss certificates. Context institutions often enter into deferred compensation agreements with selected staff through compensation and commitment programs. These agreements are generally structured as unskilled pension plans for federal income tax purposes and are based on individual agreements with selected workers. Institutions acquire BOLI as part of many of these agreements. BOLI can earn income in attractive tax equivalents that offset some or all of the costs of the agreements. PBO 12 requires that an employer`s commitment be made under a deferred compensation agreement, in accordance with the terms of the individual contract, during the required period of service, until the worker is fully entitled to receive the benefits, i.e. the “full qualification date.” Depending on the contract, the full authorization date may be the expected retirement date of the employee, the date the employee entered into the contract, or a date between the two dates.
