The new revenue recognition standard (ASC 606) outlines five steps for proper compliance.  At the surface, these steps seem simplistic.  However, there are many components that should be considered within each step based on your process 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
  • Revenue Recognition: Determine the Transaction Price Part One

This segment is designed to further evaluate Step Three of the new model dealing with determining the transaction price. The 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. 

The new revenue recognition standard provides guidance on specific types of consideration.  This is the second part in a two-part segment that will evaluate the various concepts involved in determining the contract price.

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.

Very good description of the many unique sales transaction variables that impact revenue recognition. Although these variables do not affect all business and industries, those that are impacted are impacted significantly. This course does a good job highlighting those impacts.

the course gave me an picture of how to account for the different situations in revenue recognition, but the examples were so similar so I am still a little confused. Maybe I should go over the course for several times. Thanks again for Ms Lynn's great work.

If you are in an entity with returns, royalties or consideration paid to customers, you need to take this course! If you have any financing arrangements over 1 year, you need to take this course!

I would like the option of video playback speed, akin to speed reading, I prefer to listen to presenters quicker than the normal speed and would find it easier to learn.
