Instructor for this course

COVID-19 and its related impact on the economic environment have raised numerous questions that affect almost each step of the updated standard. Those that have already implemented ASC 606 may need to review the terms of their contracts and adjust as necessary. Companies must recognize the impact and execute appropriate considerations within each step. The pandemic could affect various aspects embedded within each step of an entity's revenue recognition process. It is critical to note the potential significant impact that the COVID-19 crisis has brought to aspects of the revenue standard. Some impacts within the various steps include:

  • Step 1: Identify the contract with a customer
    • Contract enforceability
    • Collectability
    • Contract modifications and combinations
  • Step 2: Identify performance obligations
    • Material rights
  • Step 3: Determine the transaction price
    • Price concessions and other variable considerations
    • Significant financing component
    • Other extended payment terms
  • Step 4: Allocate the transaction price
    • Changes impacting standalone selling prices
  • Step 5: Recognize Revenue
    • Revenue recognized overtime
    • Impairment of receivables and contract assets
    • Contract costs
    • Disclosures

On May 28, 2014, the FASB completed its Revenue Recognition (RR) project issuing ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606). Guidance establishes principles to report information about the nature, timing, and uncertainty of revenue from contracts with customers. The standard affects all entities that have contracts with customers with some exclusions. This session will discuss basic concepts around each step of the revenue model and also implications that COVID-19 have surfaced.

Member's Profile
a) The course is an excellent introduction to ASC 606. b) The course is lot more effective when reviewed along with actual guidance handbook (I downloaded a copy of the Deloitte roadmap to applying the standard). All in all excellent value for money. c) I would definitely recommend a class room style setting (virtual or in person) to delve deeper into the more nuanced topics in the standard with more examples. d) Another observation, often times I see the instructor referring to the course not being consultative in nature, I get it that there is a liability issue but it stymies the learning process for students. Illumeo will be served well to look into this.

Very informative, course, buy too much repetitions from the Revenue recognition course. Would have preferred more of the COVID19 impact discussion with more examples.
