IFRS 15 Revenue Recognition Workshop | GID 25013 | Doha | 3-4 April 2024

Friday, December 1st, 2023

Welcome to our IFRS 15 Revenue Recognition Workshop, where we will dive into the complexities of the new standard that became effective on January 1st, 2018. We understand that the standard has a significant impact on businesses that enter into long-term contracts with multiple elements, such as Telecom operators, software companies, health science, and construction companies. This workshop will take you through the five-step model of IFRS 15, which requires organizations to differentiate between the various elements in a contract and recognize revenue for each element based on separate pricing. We will also explore the significant demands on data collection and system capabilities that the new standard necessitates.

We will also delve into the implications of the new standard’s timing of revenue recognition on bonuses, targets, KPIs, corporate income tax, external relations, loan covenants, regulatory requirements, and other relevant areas. We recognize that even companies that do not enter into long-term contracts will feel the effects of the standard’s extensive disclosure requirements, including a movement schedule of contract balances, for which data may not be readily available.

The workshop will provide you with the knowledge and skills to navigate the new requirements of IFRS 15 effectively. We will discuss practical approaches to meet the new and more extensive requirements on companies’ IT systems and underlying processes. You can expect to leave the workshop with a deep understanding of the standard and its implications for your business, as well as the confidence to comply with the standard’s requirements.

We are excited to present our high-intensity 2-day IFRS 15 course, designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to meet the challenges resulting from the new standard.  Our expert trainers from the UK will guide you through the intricacies of the new standard, providing practical insights and perspectives to help you navigate the complex requirements of IFRS 15. This is an exclusive learning opportunity, and we have limited seats available for the programme.
