CECL Readiness
CECL is coming — Are you prepared? 

CECL TimelineCECL is the Financial Accounting Standards Board's (FASB) new accounting standard that will change how financial institutions account for expected credit losses. While FASB has agreed to extend the implementation date from January 2022 to January 2023, the current expected credit loss (CECL) model still requires much preparation and planning, especially by small credit unions.

The Carolinas Credit Union League's Credit Union Accounting Services Department stands ready to help credit unions begin the process and stay on track, ensuring success and fewer compliance issues.


CECL Resources

CU Accounting Services offers several resources to help credit unions begin and track the implementation process.
