When can you restore a loan to accrual status?
Abstract: In the years following the recession, many community bankers faced unfamiliar accounting challenges. For example, they had to determine whether to place poor-performing loans on nonaccrual status or to classify arrangements with struggling borrowers as troubled debt restructurings. Now, as the economy continues to improve, they face making new accounting decisions, including whether to return a nonaccrual loan to accrual status. This article provides a brief review of the criteria to consider in making this determination.
