Revenue Recognition in a Time of Change

Revenue recognition under GAAP is a complex area where even seemingly simple transactions are subjected to some very complex recognition rules. Recent changes in revenue recognition rules due to the convergence of GAAP and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) may be leaving your company struggling to assess the changes’ true impact on revenue, and also to come to terms with the scope of your implementation needs and the degree to which you may need to modify your current revenue accounting processes.
