Note 2 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies


Basis of Presentation and Principles of Consolidation


The consolidated financial statements are presented in U.S. dollars and have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). Any reference in these notes to applicable guidance is meant to refer to the authoritative GAAP as found in the Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) and as amended by Accounting Standards Updates (“ASU”) of the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”).


In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include all adjustments, consisting of only normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair statement of the financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the interim periods presented.  The December 31, 2021, condensed consolidated balance sheet data was derived from audited financial statements, but does not include all disclosures required by GAAP.  Results for interim periods should not be considered indicative of results for any other interim period or for the full year.


The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of PARTS iD, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiary PARTS iD, LLC. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.


Use of Estimates


The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Critical accounting estimates are estimates for which (a) the nature of the estimate is material due to the level of subjectivity and judgment necessary to account for highly uncertain matters or the susceptibility of such matters to change and (b) the impact of the estimate on financial condition or operating performance is material. The Company’s critical accounting estimates and assumptions affecting the financial statements include revenue recognition, return allowances, allowance for doubtful accounts, depreciation, inventory valuation, valuation of deferred income tax assets and the capitalization and recoverability of software development costs.


Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements


On January 1, 2022, the Company adopted ASC 842 – Leases (“ASC 842”), which requires lessees to record right-of-use (“ROU”) assets and related lease obligations on the balance sheet, as well as disclose key information regarding leasing arrangements. The Company adopted the standard by applying the new transition alternative (ASU 2018-11) where an entity initially applies the new standard to all existing leases at the adoption date without restatement to prior periods. Adoption of the new standard resulted in no adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings as of the adoption date but did result in the recognition of ROU assets and related lease obligations as of January 1, 2022 of $1,322,781. The adoption of this standard did not have a significant impact on the Company’s operating results or cash flows.


The Company elected the package of practical expedients which permits a lessee to not reassess under the new standard its prior conclusions regarding lease identification, lease classification and initial direct costs. The Company did not elect the practical expedient which permits the use of hindsight when determining the lease term and assessing ROU assets for impairment.


As permitted by the transition guidance, the Company used the remaining lease term as of the date of adoption of the standard to estimate discount rates. As permitted by the standard, the Company elected, for all asset classes, the short-term lease exemption. A short-term lease is a lease that, at the commencement date, has a term of twelve months or less and does not include an option to purchase the underlying asset.


 The Company generally leases office and certain equipment under noncancelable agreements. Upon each agreement’s commencement date, the Company determines if the agreement is part of an arrangement that is or that contains a lease, determines the lease classification, and recognizes ROU assets and lease liabilities for all leases except for leases with terms of 12 months or less. Lease liabilities and their corresponding ROU assets are recorded based on the present value of lease payments over the expected lease term at the lease commencement date.


The Company used an estimated incremental borrowing rate (“IBR”) based on the information available at the commencement date of the respective lease to determine the present value of future payments as most of our leases do not provide an implicit rate. The incremental borrowing rate represents an estimate of the interest rate the Company would incur at lease commencement to borrow an amount equal to the lease payments on a collateralized basis over the term of a comparable lease.


Lease expense for minimum lease payments is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term. The Company’s lease terms may include options to extend or terminate the lease when it is reasonably certain that we will exercise that option.


The Company reviews ROU assets for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of the ROU asset may not be recoverable. When such events occur, we compare the carrying amount of the ROU asset to the undiscounted expected future cash flows related to the ROU asset. If the comparison indicates that an impairment exists, the amount of the impairment is calculated as the difference between the excess of the carrying amount over the fair value of the ROU asset. If a readily determinable market price does not exist, fair value is estimated using discounted expected cash flows attributable to the ROU asset.


Certain Significant Risks and Uncertainties


In February 2022, the Russian Federation launched a full-scale invasion against Ukraine, and sustained conflict and disruption in the region is ongoing. The Company’s engineering and product data development team as well as back office and part of its customer service center are located in Ukraine. The Company’s ability to maintain adequate liquidity for its operations is dependent upon a number of factors, including its revenue and earnings, the impacts of COVID-19 and Russian-Ukraine conflict on macroeconomic conditions, and its ability to take further cost savings and cash conservation measures if necessary. The conflict could have a material adverse effect upon the Company.


Significant Accounting Policies


There have been no significant changes from the significant accounting policies disclosed in Note 2 of the “Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements” included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 (our “2021 Form 10-K”).
