ASC 606 – Revenue Recognition Adoption

Revenue Recognition Rules – We Can Help

In 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) and the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) jointly issued new revenue recognition rules. ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, creates a consistent set of standards that all companies must follow when reporting their revenue. That includes public and private companies, across every industry.

U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) considers these changes significant because they impact business processes such as information systems, compensation, and contractual agreement structuring. Not surprisingly, adopting them is a complicated task.

But an experienced third-party advisor can make sure your company gets it right.
