Accounting Policies [Abstract]  
Basis of Presentation
VF Corporation (together with its subsidiaries, collectively known as “VF” or the “Company”) uses a 52/53 week fiscal year ending on the Saturday closest to March 31 of each year. The Company's current fiscal year runs from April 4, 2021 through April 2, 2022 ("Fiscal 2022"). Accordingly, this Form 10-Q presents our second quarter of Fiscal 2022. For presentation purposes herein, all references to periods ended September 2021 and September 2020 relate to the fiscal periods ended on October 2, 2021 and September 26, 2020, respectively. References to March 2021 relate to information as of April 3, 2021.
On June 28, 2021, VF completed the sale of its Occupational Workwear business. The Occupational Workwear business was comprised primarily of the following brands and businesses: Red Kap®, VF Solutions®, Bulwark®, Workrite®, Walls®, Terra®, Kodiak®, Work Authority® and Horace Small®. The business also included the license of certain Dickies® occupational workwear products that have historically been sold through the business-to-business channel. The results of the Occupational Workwear business and the related cash flows have been reported as discontinued operations in the Consolidated Statements of Operations and Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows, respectively, through the date of sale. The related held-for-sale assets and liabilities have been reported as assets and liabilities of discontinued operations in the Consolidated Balance Sheets, through the date of sale. These changes have been applied to all periods presented.
Unless otherwise noted, discussion within these notes to the interim consolidated financial statements relates to continuing operations. Refer to Note 5 for additional information on discontinued operations.
Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to the Fiscal 2022 presentation.
The accompanying unaudited interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X and do not include all of the information and notes required by generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for complete financial statements. Similarly, the March 2021 consolidated balance sheet data was derived from audited financial statements but does not include all disclosures required by GAAP. In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited interim consolidated financial statements contain all normal and recurring adjustments necessary to fairly state the consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows of VF for the interim periods presented. Operating results for the three and six months ended September 2021 are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for any other interim period or for Fiscal 2022. For further information, refer to the consolidated financial statements and notes included in VF’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended April 3, 2021 (“Fiscal 2021 Form 10-K”).
In preparing the interim consolidated financial statements, management makes estimates and assumptions that affect amounts reported in the interim consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. The duration and severity of the novel coronavirus ("COVID-19") pandemic, which is subject to uncertainty, continues to impact VF's business. Management's estimates and assumptions have contemplated both current and expected impacts related to COVID-19 based on available information. Actual results may differ from those estimates.
Recently Adopted and Issued Accounting Standards
Recently Adopted Accounting Standards
In December 2019, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2019-12, "Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes", an update that amends and simplifies the accounting for income taxes by removing certain exceptions in existing guidance and providing new guidance to reduce complexity in certain areas. The guidance became effective for VF in the first quarter of Fiscal 2022, but did not have a material impact on VF's consolidated financial statements.
Recently Issued Accounting Standards
In March 2020 and January 2021, the FASB issued ASU No. 2020-04, "Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting" and ASU No. 2021-01, "Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Scope", respectively. This guidance provides optional expedients and exceptions for applying GAAP to contracts, hedging relationships and other transactions affected by reference rate reform if certain criteria are met. The optional guidance is provided to ease the potential burden of accounting for reference rate reform. The guidance is effective and can be adopted no later than December 31, 2022. The Company is evaluating the impact that adopting this guidance would have on VF's consolidated financial statements.
Fair Value Measurement
Financial assets and financial liabilities measured and reported at fair value are classified in a three-level hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs used in the valuation process. A financial instrument’s categorization within the valuation hierarchy is based on the lowest level of any input that is significant to the fair value measurement. The hierarchy is based on the observability and objectivity of the pricing inputs, as follows:
Level 1 — Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2 — Significant directly observable data (other than Level 1 quoted prices) or significant indirectly observable
data through corroboration with observable market data. Inputs would normally be (i) quoted prices in active markets for similar assets or liabilities, (ii) quoted prices in inactive markets for identical or similar assets or liabilities, or (iii) information derived from or corroborated by observable market data.
Level 3 — Prices or valuation techniques that require significant unobservable data inputs. These inputs would normally be VF’s own data and judgments about assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability.
