Revenue Recognition

How the New Revenue Recognition Standard Will Impact the Transportation Industry

Posted 5:04 PM by
Under current revenue recognition standards, transportation companies generally recognize revenue upon delivery of freight to the customer. Related transportation and delivery expenses directly associated with the shipments are recorded once the revenue is recognized. This revenue recognition methodology will change with the adoption of Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606). Topic 606 is effective for public companies for periods beginning after Dec. 15, 2017 and for non-public companies for periods beginning after Dec. 15, 2018. Early adoption is permitted.

Principal Versus Agent: Which Are You?

Posted 5:00 PM by
The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) has implemented one of the most extensive changes to revenue recognition standards in its history with the issuance of Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. As entities address and apply the standard’s provisions, one key element they must determine is how to report their revenues. Entities can report revenue at the gross amount of consideration they expect to receive (with associated fees presented as a cost) or on a net basis, which is the gross amount of consideration less any fee or commission directly related to the obligations.

Revenue Recognition Changes Are Here. Is Your Manufacturing Company Ready?

Posted 1:00 PM by
In recent years, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) received feedback that revenue recognition guidance was fragmented at best, confusing at worst. This is significant considering revenue is the key measurement used to determine a manufacturing company’s performance. In response to this feedback, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, in May 2014, and subsequently amended it. This is the most significant revision to U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (U.S. GAAP) revenue recognition standards in history.
