Status of Statement No. 38
Certain Financial Statement Note Disclosures


Status

Issued: June 2001

Effective Date:  Coincides with the effective date of GASB Statement 34 for the reporting government. That is, the requirements of this Statement are effective in three phases based on a government's total annual revenues in the first fiscal year ending after June 15, 1999:

  • Phase 1 governments—with total annual revenues of $100 million or more—should implement paragraphs 6 through 11 for fiscal periods beginning after June 15, 2001. These governments should implement paragraphs 12 through 15 for fiscal periods beginning after June 15, 2002.
  • Phase 2 governments—with total annual revenues of $10 million or more but less than $100 million—should apply the requirements of this Statement for fiscal periods beginning after June 15, 2002.
  • Phase 3 governments—with total annual revenues of less than $10 million—should apply the requirements of this Statement for fiscal periods beginning after June 15, 2003.

Earlier application is encouraged. However, paragraphs 6, 14, and 15 should be implemented only if Statement 34 has also been implemented.
