Designed for accounting and auditing practitioners at all levels in both public accounting and business and industry, this course provides a thorough review of the FASB's comprehensive new
revenue recognition guidance found in ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. The course begins with a quick overview of the new guidance from 30,000 feet, before diving into the details of the FASB's new five-step revenue recognition model. Additional guidance, presentation, and disclosures are then covered before the course wraps up with a brief look at changes already being proposed lo the new guidance. Plenty of examples are used to illustrate the practical application of the ins and outs of the new guidance (including journal entries) to help you better understand and apply the complexities of this completely revamped area of accounting. It is important to note that while the FASB had decided to defer the original effective date of ASU No. 2014-09 by one year for both public and nonpublic entities, this does not mean that entities should delay investigating the impact of the new standard given their specific circumstances. Revenue recognition changes could impact wording in contracts, tax planning strategies, budgets, debt covenant compliance, incentive compensation plans, and more. In other words, this comprehensive change in revenue recognition is so much more than simply understanding the resulting debits and credits in the financial statements. As such, it is imperative that all accounting and auditing practitioners at all levels, in both public accounting and business and industry, begin their review and preparation for implementing ASU No. 2014-09 NOW.
