This is a segment in the ongoing series evaluating the Revenue Recognitions Standard. This segment is Part 2 relating to step two of the standard “Considerations for Performance Obligations”. Part 1 evaluated the concept of distinct and non-distinct goods and services and how they related to performance obligations.
Properly identifying performance obligations is a critical step in the five-step revenue recognition model. It is a step that must be completed at the inception of the contract and before moving on to step three of the models. As discussed in segment one on performance obligations, there are many types and variations of obligations and as such, management will be required to utilize significant judgment when applying this step. However, the judgment must be supported by considerations of the proper factors.
This CPE Accounting webinar evaluate areas that impact performance obligations. It utilizes many examples from various industries to illustrate the considerations that must be evaluated in line with both identifying performance obligations and allocating the transaction price appropriately.
