IFRS 15 - Revenue from Contracts Workshop

This activity is presented by PwC.

This half day intensive session will delve into the fundamental changes to revenue recognition accounting brought about by IFRS 15. The standard could significantly change how many entities recognise revenue, especially those that currently apply industry-specific guidance. The impact of this new standard on organisations may be significant, especially with the potential for revenue to be deferred but any organisation that provides products or services will need to consider the implications.


Content Description

The following are some of the areas that will be covered during the IFRS 15 workshops:
• The five step revenue recognition model, including when to recognise revenue, when transfer of control occurs, and satisfaction of performance obligations.
• The nature of disclosures requirements related to revenue.
• The pervasive business and accounting impact across all industries.
• The challenges for companies such as assessing whether or not systems, processes and internal controls are ready to capture the data needed for forming and monitoring new estimates.
• Practical implications and preparation for adoption.
