Topic 606 Revenue Recognition: A Deep Dive into the 5 Steps to Recognition

Date: Thursday, May 21, 2015
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
This issuance of the new standard for revenue recognition finally happened in May 2014, and will replace the current guidance in US GAAP and IFRS for revenue recognition. The new revenue rules represent a paradigm shift from a rules-based to a principles-based guidance, impacting several facets of a business. Companies will need to adjust policies and design new processes to ensure compliance.

Join us as revenue recognition expert, Jeff Tchir, Director of Revenue Accounting, Silver Spring Networks:

  • Walks through five steps to revenue recognition in a methodological manner, with specific examples to drive home the technical application of the new guidance.
  • Dives deep into the key differences--including what potentially won’t be different vs. slightly different vs. significantly different.
  • Delivers insights that go well beyond recapping the highlights of the new guidance to offer actionable advice in designing and executing on policy changes
  • Clarifies the status of the proposed delay in effective date, and how it should work into your adoption plan.
After attending this event you will be able to:
Identify the relevant changes in the new revenue recognition guidance for your company
Discover the implications of “rules-based” and “principles-based” revenue recognition standards
Assess the technical aspects of the 5 Steps of revenue recognition in the new standard
