THE NEW STANDARDS

On July 09, 2015, the FASB and the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) issued guidance deferring compliance with the new standards, ASC 606 and IFRS 15 to January 1, 2018. Public companies have until January 1, 2018 to comply with the new standards. And, if you plan on at least two periods of parallel reporting, you have even less time to get ready. Will you be #RevRecReady

The current standards recommendations are a culmination of many years of deliberation, consultation, and work on the part of FASB and the IASB to harmonize the way companies calculate and report deferred revenue.

The objective of the new guidance is to establish the principles to report useful information to users of financial statements about the nature, timing, and uncertainty of revenue from contracts with customers. The new guidance:

  • Removes inconsistencies and weaknesses in existing revenue requirements

  • Provides a more robust framework for addressing revenue issues

  • Improves comparability of revenue recognition practices across entities, industries, jurisdictions, and capital markets

  • Provides more useful information to users of financial statements through improved disclosure requirements

  • Simplifies the preparation of financial statements by reducing the number of requirements to which an organization must refer

SAP has been there since the beginning. Starting in 2009, SAP has been at the table with participation from their chief accountant in recommendations, commentary and deliberation on the new standards.
