FASB Accounting Standards Codification™ (ASC) on AICPA Online Professional Library. On July 1, 2009 FASB launched the FASB ASC as the single source of authoritative nongovernmental U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).

Discounted Multi-User Subscriptions
In addition to individual subscriptions, the AICPA offers multi-user subscriptions, which follow a concurrent usage model. Under this model, a subscription can be purchased for any number of users who may need access to the product at the same time. The number of seats purchased for a multi-user subscription does not need to reflect the total number of employees; rather, how many employees will need to access the product during the same time frame. For example, your firm may have 10 employees, of which only 3 may need access to the OPL subscription at the same time; therefore, you only need to purchase 3 seats under the multi-user/concurrent model.

Special Notice for University Departments and Libraries: The Financial Accounting Foundation (FAF) may, at its discretion, provide access to the FASB Accounting Standards Codification™ at reduced fees, or free of charge, to academic departments and libraries at post secondary institutions. For more information academic departments and libraries may contact FASB at (800) 748-0659.
