Your Ask Joey ™ Answer

If a loss is reasonably possible to occur, should it be accrued?

No. If the loss contingency can is only reasonably possible to occur, no accrual is necessary. The only requirement is to disclose the loss contingency in the notes to the financial statements. If the potential loss can be reasonably estimated, then include the potential loss (on the low side) in the disclosure.
