An Impairment is an accounting principle that represents the permanent reduction in the value of a non-cash company asset. An asset’s fair value, cash flow, and future benefits are regularly tested; so when these fall below the asset’s book value, then the difference between the values is written off. This results in the asset’s value declining on the balance sheet.

Rule: ASC 350 & ASC 360
