|Summary of Significant Accounting Policies||SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Our accounting policies are set forth in Note 2 to the consolidated financial statements contained in our 2020 Form 10-K. We have included certain updates to those policies below.
Accounts Receivable and Allowance for Credit Losses
Changes in the allowance for credit losses are as follows:
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU No. 2019-12, Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes, which simplifies the accounting for income taxes, eliminates certain exceptions within ASC 740, Income Taxes, and clarifies certain aspects of the current guidance to promote consistency among reporting entities. ASU 2019-12 is effective for our fiscal year beginning after December 15, 2020. We adopted this guidance as of January 1, 2021 and the adoption did not have an impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements.
Reference Rate Reform
In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting. ASU 2020-04, which provides optional guidance for a limited period of time to ease the potential
burden in accounting for (or recognizing the effects of) reference rate reform on financial reporting. Companies can apply the ASU immediately, however, the guidance will only be available until December 31, 2022. We are currently evaluating the impact that adopting this new accounting standard would have on our condensed consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.
In January 2021, the FASB issued ASU 2021-01, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Scope. The amendments in ASU 2021-01 provide optional expedients to the current guidance on contract modification and hedge accounting from the expected market transition from LIBOR and other interbank offered rates to alternative reference rates. The guidance generally can be applied to applicable contract modifications through December 31, 2022. We are currently evaluating the impact that adopting this new accounting standard would have on our condensed consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.
In October 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-10 Codification Improvements. The amendments in this ASU represent changes to clarify the Accounting Standard Codifications, correct unintended application of guidance, or make minor improvements to the ASC that are not expected to have a significant effect on current accounting practice or create a significant administrative cost to most entities. ASU 2020-10 is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2020 and interim periods within those annual periods, with early adoption permitted. The amendments in this ASU should be applied retrospectively. We adopted this guidance as of January 1, 2021 and the adoption did not have an impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements.
