Revenue recognition: Effectively managing accounting change

Companies that generate revenue and apply US GAAP or IFRS are currently facing major change. In May 2014, the FASB and IASB released a final, converged, principles-based standard on revenue recognition. Companies across all industries will use a new five-step model to recognize revenue from customer contracts.

The new standard, which replaces nearly all existing US GAAP and IFRS guidance, will require significant management judgment - in addition to changing the way many US companies recognize revenue in their financial statements. The changes will have pervasive impacts on people, policies, processes and systems.
