Accounting for Revenue: Get Prepared - Changes in recognition, timing and disclosure under AASB 15

Without prior planning and changes to your systems, the implementation of Accounting Standard AASB 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customersmay have significant adverse impacts on the timing and amount of revenue recognised in your financial reports.

Some of the possible impacts on each industry are:

  • Retail Businesses: Allocation of a component of revenue to warranty and product guarantees and the spread of that revenue over time (rather than on sale).
  • Wholesale businesses: Changes in accounting for volume discounts and consignment revenue.
  • Manufacturing, Construction and Project Businesses: Default position to account for all revenue on completion unless specific terms are included in customer contracts.
  • Service and Professions: Limited ability to recognise revenue from work in progress.

Attending this technical seminar is a must for financial accountants who have responsibility over accounting policies, systems and processes or are involved in the financial reporting process. Executives or commercial advisors may also find this seminar useful in understanding the impacts of contract terms on the ability of a business to recognise revenue and profit in the financial report.?
