FASB's Proposal on Revenue Recognition

Posted 1:59 PM by

The Financial Accounting Standards Board's (FASB) proposed Account Standards Update (ASU), Revenue Recognition (Topic 605), would generally have minimal impact on those companies in the manufacturing and distribution industries. 

Generally speaking, revenue recognition related to a sale of goods would generally be recognized at the time the goods are transferrred to the customer, consistent with current U.S. GAAP.  In certain instances, the proposal may drive changes in the timing of revenue recognition.  For further detail, see the FASB Exposure Draft.

The FASB and IASB are currently targeting issuance of a final standard in the second quarter of 2011. Comments are due October 22, 2010.
