Course Description

For many organizations, the single most critical accounting topic is the recognition of revenue--when can it be recognized and how much do you recognize? If you don't recognize the correct amount of revenue, it may be necessary to engage in adjustments at a later date, which can cause readers to doubt the veracity of your financial statements. In Revenue Recognition, we present the recognition principles needed to account for contracts with customers, using summarizations of the original accounting standards and many explanatory examples. A number of peripheral issues are also covered, including the treatment of variable consideration, noncash consideration, price discounts, subsequent price changes, consignments, licensing, repurchase agreements, disclosures, and much more.
