Revenue Recognition

How Do You Account For & Recognize Your Revenue?

ASC 606 modified how revenue is to be recognized for GAAP purposes; requiring non-public companies to comply with these provisions in 2020. Any time that there is a change in GAAP reporting, it is important to have a full understanding of the potential for over-arching impacts including tax.

Reviewing contracts with customers and identifying performance obligations as well as the timing of when revenue is earned, received, paid, or recorded for financial statement purposes is determined for ensuring proper compliance with tax provisions. Any changes in methodology as to when revenue is recognized for tax purposes will most likely require additional compliance in the year of change. We can assist in identifying the necessary changes, their impact, any necessary compliance, and how to navigate going forward.

Ensuring compliance with ASC 606 as well as revenue recognition for tax purposes is important. By obtaining the peace of mind that you have it under control as well as identifying what’s the most practical way to incorporate these new changes in your accounting policies and procedures, we can help get you there!
