Description

While the effective date of Topic 606 is behind us, there will always be a need for a comprehensive review of the accounting related to revenue recognition. Plus, though year one of reporting under Topic 606 is complete, there is plenty of opportunity to improve your revenue recognition processes, benchmark against your peer group and refine your application of Topic 606, particularly in the area of financial statement disclosures. This course will both provide the detailed review of the Topic 606 guidance, including identifying and discussing those areas of Topic 606 implementation which were the most challenging for many entities. We will review the Topic 606 Five Step revenue recognition model, highlighting areas of nuance and significant judgment and focus on disclosure requirements under the new standard. Then we’ll focus on lessons learned for the year one implementation of the new guidance, focusing on ways to continue to enhance the recording of revenue, the relevancy of the financial statement disclosures related to revenue and addressing common operational issues which arose with the adoption of Topic 606. As public companies have already found out, the application of Topic 606 is an evolving exercise, with great opportunity to improve your Year One efforts by learning from the results of others. This course will provide the forum to do so.
