On May 28, 2014, the FASB completed its Revenue Recognition project. It issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606). The guidance establishes principles to report useful information to users of financial statements about the nature, timing, and uncertainty of revenue from contracts with customers.
The standard affects all entities (public, private, and not-for-profit) that have contracts with customers. Exclusions include:
Transaction and industry-specific revenue recognition guidance are eliminated. It is replaced with a principle-based approach for determining revenue recognition. The new standard requires significantly more disclosure than previous GAAP.
This online CPE Accounting webinar is the beginning of a series on the new revenue recognition standard. The standard outlines five steps for proper compliance. On the surface, these steps seem simplistic. However, many considerations should be considered within each step based on your process and industry.
This CPE course is designed to provide an overview of the technical guidance and outline the five steps involved in the revenue recognition model. We also explore some concepts to consider within each step and then evaluate some challenges that specific industries may have when complying with the standard. Future courses will further delve into each step and provide examples and scenarios that should be considered to properly apply the step.
