This course provides an overview of the new revenue recognition standards prescribed by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued in May 2014 and phased in for reporting periods of 2017-2018.  These standards attempt to eliminate the inconsistencies and weaknesses by providing a comprehensive revenue recognition model that can be widely applied by 

  • Providing a more robust framework for addressing revenue recognition issues
  • Improving comparability of revenue recognition practices across entities, industries, jurisdictions, and capital markets
  • Simplifying the preparation of financial statements by reducing the amount of guidance to which entities must refer
  • Requiring enhanced disclosures to help users of financial statements better understand the nature, amount, timing, and uncertainty of revenue that is recognized
