GID 25020: IFRS 15 Revenue Recognition Workshop (2 Days): 28-29 December 2020 @ Singapore



Course Introduction

As you know that the IASB has issued a new standard on Revenue Recognition in May 2014 to replace the existing IAS 18.  At the same time, the IASB has also issued clarifying amendments on 12 April 2016 that have the same effective date as the standard itself.  The new standard will have significant impact on many industry groups and shall be effective from 1 January 2018.

The standard shall significantly change the current revenue recognition approach and impact the revenue under new approach for many industries.  Therefore, we have created this two day workshop to provide in-depth knowledge sharing programme to talk about implementation impact on organisations.  The programme shall cover comparison between existing vs future practices and how the new revenue recognition approach shall be implemented.  The programme shall also cover some of the major real life case studies to talk about the current practices and who it will get reflect under the new approach.

The programme shall cover some of the key burning questions and many more:

  • How to identify bundle of goods or services vs. a series of distinct goods or services that are substantially the same?
  • When do we need to separate a combined contract into different revenue elements?
  • How to determine the transaction price?
  • How to allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contracts?
  • How to use the following approached:
    • Adjusted market assessment approach
    • Expected cost plus a margin approach
    • Residual approach (only permissible in limited circumstances).
  • When should revenue be recognised -over time or at a point in time?
  • How to account sale with a right to return?
  • How to deal with the presentation and disclosure issues?

We have developed this high intensity 2 day IFRS 15 course to prepare you completely to meet the challenges resulting from new standard.  We have limited seats for this programme, therefore, do not miss the opportunity to attend this exclusive learning opportunity from our UK experts.  If you wish to enrol for this programme then contact our training service team immediately.
