Accounting Policies [Abstract]  
Consolidation, Policy [Policy Text Block] Consolidation Policy - The consolidated financial statements are prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and include the accounts of BBX Capital’s wholly-owned subsidiaries, other entities in which BBX Capital or its subsidiaries hold controlling financial interests, and any variable interest entities (“VIEs”) in which BBX Capital or one of its consolidated subsidiaries is deemed the primary beneficiary of the VIE. Inter-company accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
Use of Estimates, Policy [Policy Text Block]

Use of Estimates The preparation of GAAP financial statements 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 revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ materially from those estimates. On an ongoing basis, management evaluates its estimates, including those that relate to the recognition of revenue; the allowance for expected credit losses; the recovery of the carrying value of real estate; the measurement of assets and liabilities at fair value, including amounts recognized in business combinations and items measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis, such as intangible assets, goodwill, and real estate; the amount of the deferred tax valuation allowance and accounting for uncertain tax positions; and the estimate of contingent liabilities related to litigation and other claims and assessments. Management bases its estimates on historical experience and on other various assumptions that it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ materially from these estimates under different assumptions and conditions.


Due to, among other things, the impact and potential future impact of the current inflationary and geopolitical environment, rising interest rates, labor shortages, supply chain issues, ongoing economic uncertainty, a possible recession, and the COVID-19 pandemic, actual conditions could materially differ from the Company’s expectations and estimates, which could materially affect the Company’s results of operations and financial condition. The severity, magnitude, and duration, as well as the economic consequences, of the above conditions are uncertain, rapidly changing, and difficult to predict. As a result, the Company’s accounting estimates and assumptions may change over time in response to changes in, and the impact of, such external factors. Such changes could result in, among other adjustments, future impairments of intangible assets, long-lived assets, and investments in unconsolidated subsidiaries and additional future reserves for inventory and receivables.

Reclassification, Comparability Adjustment [Policy Text Block]

Reclassifications -

Certain amounts for prior years have been reclassified to conform to the revised financial statement presentation for 2022. Marketable investment securities totaling $4.6 million and $0.9 million of  community development district bonds were reclassified from other assets to securities available for sale in the statement of financial condition as of December 31, 2021 to conform to the revised financial presentation for 2022. The reclassifications had no impact on the Company’s statements of operations and comprehensive income.  


Cash, Cash Equivalents, and Restricted Cash - Cash equivalents consist of demand deposits at financial institutions, money market funds, and other short-term investments with original maturities at the time of purchase of 90 days or less. Cash in excess of the Company’s immediate operating requirements are generally invested in short-term time deposits, money market instruments and treasury securities that typically have original maturities at the date of purchase of three months or less. Restricted cash consists primarily of cash subject to contractual restrictions. Cash and cash equivalents are maintained at various financial institutions located throughout the United States and Canada in amounts exceeding the $250,000 federally insured limit. Accordingly, the Company is subject to credit risk. Management performs periodic evaluations of the relative credit standing of financial institutions maintaining the Company’s deposits to evaluate and, if necessary, take actions in an attempt to mitigate credit risk.

Revenue [Policy Text Block]

Revenue Recognition


Trade sales – Revenue is recognized on trade sales as follows:



Revenue is recognized on wholesale trade sales when control of the products is transferred to customers, which generally occurs when the products are shipped or the customers accept delivery. Wholesale trade sales typically have payment terms between 30 and 60 days. Certain customer trade sale contracts have provisions for right of return, volume rebates, and price concessions. These types of discounts are accounted for as variable consideration, and the Company uses the expected value method to calculate the estimated reduction in the trade sales revenue. The inputs used in the expected value method include historical experience with the customer, sales forecasts, and outstanding purchase orders.


Revenue is recognized on retail trade sales at the point of sale, which occurs when products are sold at the Company’s retail locations.


Sales and other taxes imposed by governmental authorities that are collected by the Company from customers are excluded from revenue or the transaction price.


Shipping and handling activities that occur after the control of goods is transferred to a customer are accounted for as fulfillment activities instead of a separate performance obligation.


Revenue is not adjusted for the effects of a significant financing component if the Company expects, at the contract inception, that the performance obligation will be satisfied within one year or less.


Sales of real estate inventory - Revenue is generally recognized on sales of real estate inventory to customers when the sales are closed and title passes to the buyer. The Company generally receives payment from the sale of real estate inventory at the date of closing. In addition, certain real estate sales contracts provide for a contingent purchase price. The contingent purchase price in contracts pursuant to which the Company sells developed lots to homebuilders is generally calculated as a percentage of the proceeds that the homebuilders receive from sales to their own customers, and the Company does not receive payment of such amounts until the homebuilders close on such sales. The Company accounts for the contingent purchase price in these contracts as variable consideration and estimates the amount of such consideration that may be recognized upon the closing of the real estate transaction based on the expected value method. The estimate of variable consideration is recognized as revenue to the extent that it is not probable that a significant reversal in the amount of cumulative revenue recognized will occur when the uncertainty associated with the variable consideration is subsequently resolved. The inputs used in the expected value method include current and expected sales prices (net of incentives), historical contingent purchase price receipts, and sales contracts on similar properties.


Interest income Interest income from loans receivable originated by the Company and the note receivable from Bluegreen Vacations is recognized on accruing loans when management determines that it is probable that all of the principal and interest will be collected in accordance with the loan’s contractual terms. Interest income is recognized on non-accrual loans on a cash basis. Other than the note receivable from Bluegreen Vacations, the Company’s loans receivable are included in other assets in the Company’s consolidated statements of financial condition.


Net gains on sales of real estate assets Net gains on sales of real estate assets represents sales of assets to non-customers. Gains (or losses) are recognized from sales to non-customers when the control of the asset has been transferred to the buyer, which generally occurs when title passes to the buyer.


Other revenue Other revenue is primarily comprised of rental income from properties under short-term operating leases, income from the operations of a golf course acquired in connection with a loan foreclosure, and insurance commissions earned from insurance carriers. Rental income is recognized as rents become due, and rental payments received in advance are deferred until earned.

Marketable Securities, Policy [Policy Text Block]

Marketable Investment Securities – Marketable investment securities are classified as held to maturity, available for sale, or trading depending on the Company’s intent with regard to its investments at the time of purchase. Debt securities that management has both the intent and ability to hold to maturity are classified as securities held to maturity and are stated at cost, net of unamortized premiums and unaccreted discounts. Debt securities designated as held to maturity with maturities of 90 days or less at the date of purchase are classified as cash and cash equivalents in the Company’s statements of financial condition.


Debt securities not held to maturity are classified as available for sale and are recorded at fair value. Unrealized gains and losses, after applicable taxes, resulting from changes in fair value are recorded as a component of other comprehensive income (loss).


Securities acquired for short-term appreciation or other trading purposes are classified as trading securities and are recorded at fair value. Realized and unrealized gains and losses resulting from such fair value adjustments and from recording the results of sales are recorded in the consolidated statements of operations in other income.


For securities classified as held to maturity, management must estimate expected credit losses over the remaining expected life and recognize this estimate as an allowance for credit losses. Debt securities that are available for sale are analyzed quarterly for credit losses. The analysis is performed on an individual security basis for all securities where fair value has declined below amortized cost.


Interest on securities, including the amortization of premiums and the accretion of discounts, is reported in interest income using the interest method over the lives of the securities, adjusted for actual prepayments. Gains and losses on the sale of securities are recorded on the trade date and recognized using the specific identification method.

Accounts Receivable [Policy Text Block]

Trade Accounts Receivables and Allowance for Expected Credit Losses  Trade accounts receivable are stated at the amounts billed to customers for sale of goods or services with a contractual maturity of one year or less. The Company provides an allowance for expected credit losses. This allowance is based on a review of outstanding receivables and historical collection information and an evaluation of both existing economic conditions and reasonable and supportable forecasts of future economic conditions impacting the Company’s customers. Accounts receivable are ordinarily due 30 to 60 days after the issuance of the invoice (based on terms) and are considered delinquent after 30 days past the due date. These delinquent receivables are monitored and are charged to the allowance for expected credit losses based on an evaluation of individual circumstances of the customer. Account balances are written off after collection efforts have been made and the potential recovery is considered remote.


Inventory, Policy [Policy Text Block]

Trade Inventory – Trade inventory is measured at the lower of cost or net realizable value. Cost includes all costs of conversions, including materials, direct labor, production overhead, depreciation of equipment, and shipping costs. Raw materials are not written down unless the goods in which they are incorporated are expected to be sold for less than cost, in which case, they are written down by reference to replacement cost of the raw materials. Finished goods and work in progress are stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value determined on a first-in, first-out or average cost basis. Shipping and handling fees billed to customers are recorded as trade sales, and shipping and handling fees paid by the Company are recorded as cost of trade sales.


In valuing inventory, the Company makes assumptions regarding write-downs required for excess and obsolete inventory based on judgments and estimates formulated from available information. Estimates for excess and obsolete inventory are based on historical and forecasted usage. Inventory is also examined for upcoming expiration, and write-downs are recorded where appropriate. Because the value of inventory that will ultimately be realized cannot be known with exact certainty, we rely upon both past sales history and future sales forecasts to provide a basis for the determination of the write-down. Inventory is considered potentially obsolete if we have withdrawn those products from the market or had no sales of the product for the past 12 months and have no sales forecasted for the next 12 months. Inventory is considered potentially excess if the quantity on hand exceeds 12 months of expected remaining usage. The resulting potentially obsolete and excess parts are then reviewed to determine if a substitute usage or a future need exists. Items without an identified current or future usage are written down in an amount equal to 100% of the cost of such inventory. We review these assumptions regularly for all of our inventories which include sales demonstration and service inventories.


Real Estate, Policy [Policy Text Block] Real Estate From time to time, the Company acquires real estate or takes possession or ownership of real estate through the foreclosure of collateral on loans receivable. Such real estate is classified as real estate held-for-sale, real estate held-for-investment, or real estate inventory. When real estate is classified as held-for-sale, it is initially recorded at fair value less estimated selling costs and subsequently measured at the lower of cost or estimated fair value less selling costs. When real estate is classified as held-for-investment, it is initially recorded at fair value and, if applicable, is depreciated in subsequent periods over its useful life using the straight-line method. Real estate is classified as real estate inventory when the property is under development for sale to customers and is measured at cost, including costs of improvements and amenities incurred subsequent to acquisition, capitalized interest and real estate taxes, and other costs incurred during the construction period. Expenditures for capital improvements are generally capitalized, while the ongoing costs of owning and operating real estate are charged to selling, general and administrative expenses as incurred. Impairments required on loans receivable at the time of foreclosure of real estate collateral are charged to the allowance for loan losses, while impairments of real estate to reflect subsequent declines in fair value are recorded as impairment losses in the Company’s consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income.
Equity Method Investments [Policy Text Block]

Investments in and Advances to Unconsolidated Real Estate Joint Ventures - The Company uses the equity method of accounting to record its equity investments in entities in which it has significant influence but does not hold a controlling financial interest, including equity investments in VIEs in which the Company is not the primary beneficiary. Under the equity method, an investment is reflected on the statement of financial condition of an investor as a single amount, and an investor’s share of earnings or losses from its investment is reflected in the statement of operations as a single amount. The investment is initially measured at cost and subsequently adjusted for the investor’s share of the earnings or losses of the investee and distributions received from the investee. The investor recognizes its share of the earnings or losses of the investee in the periods in which they are reported by the investee in its financial statements rather than in the period in which an investee declares a distribution. Intra-entity profits and losses on assets still remaining with an investor or investee are eliminated.


The Company recognizes its share of earnings or losses from certain equity method investments based on the hypothetical liquidation at book value method. Under this method, earnings or losses are recognized based on how an entity would allocate and distribute its cash if it were to sell all of its assets and settle its liabilities for their carrying amounts and liquidate at the reporting date. This method is used to calculate the Company’s share of earnings or losses from equity method investments when the contractual cash disbursements to the investors are different than the investors’ stated ownership percentage.


The Company capitalizes interest expense on investments in and advances to or loans to real estate joint ventures accounted for under the equity method that have commenced qualifying activities, such as real estate development projects. The capitalization of interest expense ceases when the investee completes its qualifying activities, and total capitalized interest expense cannot exceed interest expense incurred.


The Company reviews its investments on an ongoing basis for indicators of other-than-temporary impairment. This determination requires significant judgment in which the Company evaluates, among other factors, the fair market value of its investments, general market conditions, the duration and extent to which the fair value of an investment is less than cost, and the Company’s intent and ability to hold an investment until it recovers. The Company also considers specific adverse conditions related to the financial health and business outlook of the investee, including industry and market performance, rating agency actions, and expected future operating and financing cash flows. If a decline in the fair value of an investment is determined to be other-than-temporary, an impairment loss is recorded to reduce the investment to its fair value, and a new cost basis in the investment is established.

Property, Plant and Equipment, Policy [Policy Text Block] Property and Equipment, net – Property and equipment is stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and amortization. Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets, which is generally 3 to 5 years for computer equipment and software, 5 years for furniture and fixtures, and 7 to 10 years for manufacturing equipment. The cost of leasehold improvements is depreciated using the straight-line method over the shorter of the term of the related lease or the estimated useful lives of the improvements. Expenditures for new property, leasehold improvements, and equipment, as well as major renewals and betterments, are capitalized, while expenditures for maintenance and repairs are expensed as incurred. Gains or losses on the disposal of property and equipment are reflected in current operations in selling, general and administrative expenses.
Goodwill and Intangible Assets, Goodwill, Policy [Policy Text Block]

Goodwill – The Company recognizes goodwill upon the acquisition of a business when the fair values of the consideration transferred and any noncontrolling interests in the acquiree are in excess of the fair value of the acquiree’s identifiable net assets. The Company tests goodwill for potential impairment on an annual basis as of December 31 or during interim periods if impairment indicators exist. Each period and for each reporting unit the Company can elect to first assess qualitatively whether it is necessary to perform goodwill impairment testing. If the Company believes, as a result of its qualitative assessment, that it is not more likely than not that the fair value of any reporting unit containing goodwill is less than its carrying amount, the quantitative goodwill impairment test is unnecessary. If the Company elects to bypass the qualitative assessment option, or if the qualitative assessment was performed and resulted in the Company being unable to conclude that it is not more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit containing goodwill is greater than its carrying amount, the Company will perform the quantitative goodwill impairment test.


The Company evaluates various factors affecting a reporting unit in its qualitative assessment, including, but not limited to, macroeconomic conditions, industry and market considerations, cost factors, and financial performance. If the Company concludes from its qualitative assessment that goodwill impairment testing is required or if the Company bypasses the qualitative test, the fair value of the reporting unit is compared to its carrying amount. If the carrying amount of a reporting unit exceeds its fair value, the Company records an impairment loss for the excess amount, although the impairment loss is limited to the amount of goodwill allocated to the reporting unit.


The Company generally applies an income approach utilizing a discounted cash flow methodology and a market approach utilizing a guideline public company and transaction methodology to estimate the fair value of its reporting units. The estimated fair values obtained from the income and market approaches are compared and reviewed for reasonableness to determine a best estimate of fair value. The Company’s discounted cash flow methodology establishes an estimate of fair value by estimating the present value of the projected future cash flows to be generated from a reporting unit. The discount rate applied to the projected future cash flows to arrive at the present value is intended to reflect all risks of ownership and the associated risks of realizing the stream of projected future cash flows. The Company generally uses a five to ten-year period in computing discounted cash flow values. The most significant assumptions used in the discounted cash flow methodology are generally the terminal value, the discount rate, and the forecast of future cash flows. The guideline public company methodology establishes an estimate of fair value based upon the trading prices of publicly traded companies that are similar to the applicable reporting unit, while the guideline transaction methodology establishes an estimate of fair value based on acquisitions of companies that are similar to the applicable reporting unit. Under these methods, the Company develops multiples of revenue and earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (“EBITDA”) based upon the indicated enterprise value, revenues, and EBITDA of the guideline companies and makes adjustments to such multiples based on various considerations, including the financial condition, operating performance, and relative risk of the guideline companies. The adjusted multiples are then applied to the revenues and EBITDA of the reporting unit to develop an estimated fair value of the reporting unit. Depending on the facts and circumstances applicable to the reporting unit and the guideline companies, the Company may place greater emphasis on the income or market approach to determine its best estimate of fair value.


Inherent in the Company’s determinations of fair value are certain judgments and estimates relating to future cash flows, including the Company’s assessment of current economic indicators and market valuations, and assumptions about the Company’s strategic plans with regard to its operating businesses. Due to the uncertainties associated with such evaluations, actual results could differ materially from such estimates.

Goodwill and Intangible Assets, Intangible Assets, Policy [Policy Text Block] Intangible Asset, net Intangible assets in the Company’s financial statements primarily consist of intangible assets acquired in connection with certain business combinations, including acquired customer relationships, trademarks, and noncompetition agreements. These definite-lived intangible assets are recognized at fair value upon acquisition and amortized on a straight-line basis over their respective estimated useful lives.
Lessee, Leases [Policy Text Block] Operating Lease Assets and Operating Lease Liabilities The Company recognizes right-of-use assets and lease liabilities associated with lease agreements with an initial term of greater than 12 months, while lease agreements with an initial term of 12 months or less are not recorded in the Company’s consolidated statements of financial condition. The Company determines if an arrangement is a lease at inception. Operating lease assets represent the Company’s right to use an underlying asset for the lease term, and operating lease liabilities represent the Company’s obligation to make lease payments. Operating lease assets and liabilities are recognized when the Company takes possession of the underlying asset based on the present value of lease payments over the lease term. The Company generally does not include lease payments associated with renewal options that are exercisable at its discretion in the measurement of its operating lease assets and operating lease liabilities as it is not reasonably certain that such options will be exercised. The Company generally recognizes lease costs associated with its operating leases on a straight-line basis over the lease term, while variable lease payments that do not depend on an index or rate are recognized as variable lease costs in the period in which the obligation for those payments is incurred. The Company recognizes accrued straight-line rent and unamortized tenant allowances received from landlords associated with its operating leases as a reduction of the operated lease assets associated with such leases. The Company has lease agreements with lease and non-lease components which it generally accounts for as a single lease component for lease classification, recognition, and measurement purposes.
Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets, Policy [Policy Text Block]

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets – The Company evaluates its long-lived assets, including property and equipment, definite-lived intangible assets, and right-of-use assets associated with its lease agreements, for potential impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset (or asset group) may not be recoverable. Factors which could indicate that an asset (or asset group) may not be recoverable include, but are not limited to, significant underperformance relative to historical or projected future operating results, significant changes in the manner of use of the assets or the strategy for the overall business, a significant decrease in the market value of the assets, and significant negative industry or economic trends. The carrying amount of an asset (or asset group) is not considered recoverable when the carrying amount exceeds the sum of the undiscounted cash flows expected to result from the use of the asset (or asset group). To the extent that the carrying amount of an asset (or asset group) exceeds the sum of such undiscounted cash flows, an impairment loss is measured and recorded based on the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset (or asset group) exceeds its fair value. Impairment losses associated with an asset group are allocated to long-lived assets within the asset group based on their relative carrying amounts; however, the carrying amounts of individual long-lived assets within an asset group are not reduced below their individual fair values.


To the extent that impairment testing is required, the Company generally estimates the fair values of its long-lived assets utilizing a discounted cash flow methodology which estimates the present value of the projected future cash flows expected to be generated from the applicable assets or asset groups. When estimating the fair value of asset groups related to a retail location, the Company’s estimated fair value considers the relevant market participants and the highest and best use for the location, including whether the value of the location would be maximized by operating the location in its current use or by permanently closing the location and subleasing it. To the extent applicable, the Company estimates the fair value of right-of-use assets associated with its retail locations using a discounted cash flow methodology which estimates the present value of market rental rates applicable to such right-of-use assets. When estimating the fair value of intangible assets, the Company uses a form of the income approach relevant to the applicable asset or asset group. The Company uses the relief from royalty valuation method, a form of the income approach, to estimate the fair value of trademarks. Under this method, the fair value of trademarks is determined by calculating the present value using a risk-adjusted discount rate of the estimated future royalty payments that would have to be paid if the trademarks were not owned. The Company uses the multi-period excess earnings method, a form of the income approach, to estimate the fair value of customer relationships. Under this method, the fair value of customer relationships is determined by isolating the expected cash flows attributable to the customer relationship intangible asset and discounting these cash flows using a risk-adjusted discount rate.


As the carrying amounts of the Company’s long-lived assets are dependent upon estimates of future cash flows that they are expected to generate, these assets may be impaired if cash flows decrease significantly or do not meet expectations, in which case they would be written down to their estimated fair values. The estimates of useful lives and expected cash flows require the Company to make significant judgments regarding future periods that are subject to a number of factors, many of which are beyond the Company’s control.

Deferred Charges, Policy [Policy Text Block] Deferred Financing Costs – Deferred financing costs are comprised of costs incurred in connection with obtaining financing from third-party lenders and are presented in the Company’s consolidated statements of financial condition as other assets or as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of the associated debt liability. These costs are capitalized and amortized to interest expense over the terms of the related financing arrangements.
Income Tax, Policy [Policy Text Block]

Income Taxes – Subsequent to September 30, 2020, BBX Capital and its subsidiaries in which it owns 80% or more of the voting power and value of the subsidiary’s stock file a consolidated U.S. Federal and Florida income tax return. Other than in Florida, BBX Capital and its subsidiaries file separate or unitary state income tax returns for each jurisdiction. Subsidiaries in which BBX Capital owns less than 80% of the outstanding equity are not included in the Company’s consolidated U.S. Federal or Florida state income tax return. Prior to September 30, 2020, the Company was a wholly owned subsidiary of Bluegreen Vacations, and its activities were included in Bluegreen Vacations’ tax return filings. While it was a wholly owned subsidiary of Bluegreen Vacations, the Company accounted for income taxes on a separate return basis.


The Company accounts for income taxes using the asset and liability method. Accordingly, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in the tax rate is recognized in income or expense in the period that the change is effective. Income tax benefits are recognized when it is probable that the deduction will be sustained. A valuation allowance is established when it is more likely than not that all or a portion of a deferred tax asset will either expire before the Company is able to realize the benefit, or that future deductibility is uncertain. If a valuation allowance is recorded, a subsequent change in circumstances that causes a change in judgment about the realization of the related deferred tax amount could result in the reversal of the deferred tax valuation allowance.


An uncertain tax position is defined as a position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return that is not based on clear and unambiguous tax law and which is reflected in measuring current or deferred income tax assets and liabilities for interim or annual periods. The Company may recognize the tax benefit from an uncertain tax position only if it believes that it is more likely than not that the tax position will be sustained on examination by the taxing authorities based on the technical merits of the position. The Company measures the tax benefits recognized based on the largest benefit that has a greater than 50% likelihood of being realized upon ultimate resolution. The Company recognizes interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits in its provision for income taxes. The Company has not identified any uncertain tax positions as of December 31, 2022.

Consolidation, Subsidiaries or Other Investments, Consolidated Entities, Policy [Policy Text Block]

Noncontrolling Interests – Noncontrolling interests reflect third parties’ ownership interests in entities that are consolidated in the Company’s financial statements but are less than 100% owned by the Company. Noncontrolling interests are recognized as equity in the consolidated statements of financial condition and presented separately from the equity attributable to BBX Capital’s shareholders, while noncontrolling interests that are redeemable for cash at the holder’s option or upon a contingent event outside of the Company’s control are classified as redeemable noncontrolling interests and presented in the mezzanine section between total liabilities and equity in the consolidated statements of financial condition. The Company measures redeemable noncontrolling interests on an ongoing basis by accreting changes in the estimated redemption value of such interests from the date of issuance to the earliest redemption date and adjusts the carrying amount of such interests to the calculated value in the event that it is in excess of the carrying amount of such interests at such time.


A change in the ownership interests of a subsidiary is accounted for as an equity transaction if the Company retains its controlling financial interest in the subsidiary.


The amounts of consolidated net income and comprehensive income attributable to BBX Capital’s shareholders and noncontrolling interests are separately presented in the Company’s consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income.

Cost of Goods and Service [Policy Text Block] Cost of Trade Sales – Cost of trade sales includes the cost of inventory, shipping and handling, warehousing, and occupancy expenses related to the Company’s retail locations and manufacturing facilities.
Advertising Cost [Policy Text Block] Advertising – The Company expenses advertising and marketing costs as incurred. Advertising and marketing costs, which are included as selling, general and administrative expenses in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income, were $1.6 million, $1.4 million, and $1.1 million for the years ended December 31, 2022, 2021, and 2020, respectively.
Commitments and Contingencies, Policy [Policy Text Block] Accounting for Loss Contingencies – Loss contingencies, including those arising from legal actions, are recorded as liabilities when the likelihood of loss is probable and an amount or range of loss can be reasonably estimated.
Earnings Per Share, Policy [Policy Text Block] Earnings Per Share – Basic and diluted earnings per share is computed by dividing net income attributable to BBX Capital’s shareholders by the weighted average shares outstanding. For period prior to the spin-off on September 30, 2020, the weighted average shares outstanding was based on the shares issued in connection with the spin-off, while for periods subsequent to spin-off, the shares outstanding was based on the actual weighted average number of shares outstanding.
New Accounting Pronouncements, Policy [Policy Text Block]

Recently Adopted and Future Adoption of Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements


There were no accounting pronouncements adopted during the year ended December 31, 2022 and no recent Standards Updates issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) that are relevant to the Company's operations.  The Company has adopted all relevant FASB pronouncements and guidance as of December 31, 2022
