In this course, Ray Thompson breaks down the new revenue recognition Standard (FASB and IASB have jointly issued ASU 2014-09/IFRS 15), which will have a major effect on the way that companies account for contracts with customers. In order to address the longstanding dissatisfaction with this area of revenue recognition, the Boards have revamped their guidance by completely rebuilding their framework on revenue recognition across a broad range of industries. For companies that engage in complex transactions and business arrangements, their revenue, income, assets, and liabilities will change quite significantly. You’ll learn everything you need to know about the new Standard, with the changes presented in a thorough, straightforward manner.
