FASB ASC Launch and Upcoming GASB GARS Release

The FAF is pleased to announce that we have launched a new FASB Accounting Standards Codification® (ASC) platform with a new Professional View and Basic View, as well as a new online store, with the new GASB Accounting Research System (GARS) coming thereafter.

The new FASB ASC and GASB GARS—both Basic View and Professional View—will maintain the content and functionality you are familiar with, along with the benefits of transitioning to a next generation platform.

GASB GARS: New Subscription Freeze, Temporary Feature Freeze and Account Suspension of Services

As part of the cutover, the GASB online store site is currently unavailable for a period of time. All current subscribers will be able to continue accessing the FASB ASC and GARS Online content during this time.

As we prepare for the future GARS launch, the GASB online store site is unavailable, and current subscribers will continue to have access to the content but some services and features will be suspended.

Certain Professional View functions (annotations, bookmarks, feedback, saved search, history, etc.) will not be available until the new GARS platform is live.

During that time customers will not be able to make new purchases or initiate renewals of GARS, and administrators for ProView subscriptions will not be able to make any changes to their account, including adding or removing individual users from a subscription. To ensure uninterrupted service for renewing subscribers, all GARS subscriptions that are due to be renewed between now and September 30, 2022 will automatically be extended through September 30, 2022.

We will provide updates on GASB.org as we approach the potential roll out date for GARS. We apologize for the suspension of services and inconvenience, and value you as a GASB stakeholder. As such, we will also be extending all paid GARS subscriptions for two additional months at no cost to current Professional View subscribers. We will add those months on to the end of all existing subscriptions.

Please check back here for updates, or you may reach out to gasbpubs@gasb.org with questions.
