On May 28, 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) completed its Revenue Recognition project. It issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606). The guidance establishes principles to report useful information to users of financial statements about the nature, timing, and uncertainty of revenue from contracts with customers.

The standard affects all entities (public, private, and not-for-profit) that have contracts with customers. Exclusions include:

Leases accounted for under FASB Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 840, Leases; Insurance contracts accounted for under FASB ASC 944, Financial Services—Insurance; Most financial instruments, and guarantees (other than product or service warranties). Transaction and industry specific revenue recognition guidance is eliminated. It is replaced with a principle based approach for determining revenue recognition. The new standard requires significantly more disclosure than previous generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).
