Revenue from Contracts with Customers

Revenue from Contracts with Customers: ASC Topic 606

FASB's ASU No. 2014-09 - Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) is now effective for all entities.   While it has been effective, many challenges remain both from an accounting and disclosure standpoint. Learn precisely how to account for revenue and associated costs under ASC 340-40. Topics include:

  • Scope and objectives of ASC 606 
  • The core principle and how it varies from current U.S. GAAP
  • Detailed review of challenges within the 5-steps for recognizing revenue:
    1. Identifying contracts with the customer (606-10-25-1)
    2. Identify separate performance obligations within the contract (606-10-25-14)
    3. Determining the transaction price (606-10-32-2)
    4. Allocate the transaction price to the various performance obligations (606-10-32-28)
    5. Recognize revenue when (or as) the various performance obligations are satisfied (606-10-25-23)
  • Required contract criteria
  • Dealing with collectability
  • Identifying and analyzing distinct types of company revenue

  • Industry guidance from the AICPA
Session objectives:

  • Understand the important judgments involved and how to document them
  • Review recent SEC comments
  • Learn controls to help mitigate the risks of revenue errors and fraud
  • Review example presentations, including disclosures

This is a critical topic for all organizations compiling their financial statements in accordance with U.S. GAAP.  Financial and accounting management, staff, audit committee members, and auditors can all benefit in learning the latest developments and guidance to help pave the way towards a smooth transition.
