- a comparison of current requirements compared to new requirements,
- context for the reasoning behind the changes,
- examples of implementation,

We encourage you to begin transition steps now to prepare your organization for these important changes. This guide is a tool that can be copied and shared throughout your organization as you develop an implementation plan and work to update your financial statements.
