Course Description

It appears that the new revenue recognition standard, FASB Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, has been deferred for the last time and will be required of all entities reporting under GAAP for periods ending after December 15, 2019 which is for the year 2020 for calendar year entities.  Unfortunately, entities that wait until year-end, when they are preparing their 2020 financial statements may have difficulty accumulating the information necessary to apply it correctly and to meet the disclosure requirements.  The sooner an entity begins the process, the easier the transition will be.

This program will provide a summary of the key issues involved in adopting and applying the new revenue recognition.  Emphasis will be on what is changing in relation to provisions of the standard becoming obsolete.  The disclosure requirements of the new pronouncement will also be reviewed, along with suggestions as to how to disclose the initial adoption and disclosure in subsequent periods

A significant portion of the program will be devoted to understanding the assets and liabilities that may appear on the balance sheet due to the new standard and how to determine the appropriate carrying values.  That information will be used to construct the initial journal entry necessary upon adoption.
