An impairment charge is a cost that shows a reduction in the carrying value of a specific asset on a balance sheet. This occurs when an asset's book value exceeds its fair value in the market according to the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). https://www.indeed.com/career-advice/care...
