Basis of Presentation
We prepare these consolidated financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"). These consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Masonite International Corporation, a company incorporated under the laws of British Columbia, and its subsidiaries, as of January 2, 2022, and January 3, 2021, and for the years ended January 2, 2022, January 3, 2021, and December 29, 2019.
Our fiscal year is the 52- or 53-week period ending on the Sunday closest to December 31. In a 52-week year, each fiscal quarter consists of 13 weeks. For ease of disclosure, the 13-week periods are referred to as three-month periods and the 52- or 53-week periods are referred to as years. Our 2020 fiscal year, which ended on January 3, 2021, contained 53 weeks of operating results, with the additional week occurring in the fourth quarter.
Changes in Accounting Standards and Policies
Adoption of Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, "Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes," as part of its Simplification Initiative to reduce the cost and complexity in accounting for income taxes. This standard removes certain exceptions related to the approach for intraperiod tax allocation, the methodology for calculating income taxes in an interim period and the recognition of deferred tax liabilities for outside basis differences. It also amends other aspects of the guidance to help simplify and promote consistent application of GAAP. We have adopted the new guidance prospectively as of January 4, 2021, the beginning of fiscal year 2021, and the adoption did not have a material impact on our financial statements.
In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-14, "Disclosure Framework—Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Defined Benefit Plans," which amended ASC 715, "Compensation—Retirement Benefits." This standard is applicable for employers that sponsor defined benefit pension or other postretirement plans, and eliminates disclosures no longer considered cost beneficial, clarifies specific disclosure requirements for entities that provide aggregate disclosures for two or more plans and adds requirements for explanations for significant gains and losses related to changes in benefit obligations. The guidance is effective for annual periods ending after December 15, 2020; early adoption is permitted and retrospective application is required. We adopted the new guidance using a retrospective approach as of January 3, 2021, the end of fiscal year 2020, and the adoption did not have a material impact on our financial statements or disclosures.
In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, "Financial Instruments—Credit Losses (Topic 326)," which replaces the incurred loss methodology for recognizing credit losses with a current expected credit losses model. This standard applies to all financial assets, including trade receivables. Our current accounts receivable policy is described in detail in Note 1 and uses historical, current and forecasted information to estimate all expected credit losses in our existing account receivable balances. The guidance is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those fiscal y
