The Financial Accounting Foundation has announced that the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s FASB Accounting Standards Codification has been enabled for use on tablet devices.

The FASB Codification contains authoritative U.S. GAAP, as recognized by FASB, to be applied by nongovernmental entities, including public and private companies and not-for-profit organizations.

FASB Codification subscribers can access the new tablet view through Apple’s iPad iOS operating system, as well as Google Android-based devices at

After the user logs in, the system will automatically recognize the user’s device and display the optimized view. The tablet feature is available for both Professional and Basic Views.

When a user accesses the tablet view, on-screen pop-up instructions guide the user to add a link icon, or bookmark, to the device’s home screen. More details are available on the “Tablet Usage” page of the Codification Help section.

The FAF also plans to announce the availability of a tablet view for the Governmental Accounting Standards Board’s GASB Governmental Accounting Research System (GARS Online) in the weeks ahead.
