The new (ASC 606) revenue recognition standard outlines five steps for proper compliance.  At the surface, these steps seem simple.  However, there are many components that should be considered within each step based on your company's processes and industry.  Previous courses in this series have covered the standard at a high level and evaluated step one and two of the standard.  They are:

  • Complying with the Revenue Recognition Standard
  • Revenue Recognition:  Considerations for Identifying the Contract - Part One
  • Revenue Recognition:  Considerations for Identifying the Contract - Part Two
  • Revenue Recognition:  Considerations for Performance Obligations – Part One
  • Revenue Recognition:  Considerations for Performance Obligations – Part Two

This segment is designed to evaluate Step Three of the new model dealing with Determining the Transaction Price.

Determining transaction price is more difficult than it may first appear. Transaction price is the basis for measuring revenue. It is the amount of consideration the entity expects to be entitled to in exchange for transferring promised goods or services. Determining transaction price requires election of policies and significant use of judgment.

Completing this step for fixed price contracts can be straightforward. However, the path becomes convoluted for variable priced contracts.  The new revenue recognition standard identifies three areas that affect the estimate of transaction price, which we will review:

  • Nature of consideration
  • Timing of consideration
  • Amount of consideration 

Learning Objectives

  • Explore the concepts that contribute to the transaction price.
  • Identify considerations when evaluating transaction price.
  • Explore the concept of variable consideration.
  • Identify methods to determine variable consideration.
  • Explore the concept of variability constraints.
  • Identify what constitutes implied variability.

Good course for regular subscription price (not certification price). Benefited from taking all the courses. A lot of repetition could be viewed as reinforcing or redundant depending on how quickly can learn. Would rely on wording on slides more than those spoken, as less technically precise. Now have strong foundation in ASC 606.

There are so many concepts and examples here and the differences between them are very small, as a result I found a difficult in applying the corresponding situations and methods to my routine work. Hope Ms Lynn can use more practical examples to explain these methods!
