Six System Objectives for Meeting the New Rev Rec Standards
For the full year ended December 31, 2019, the new standards for revenue recognition will become audit guidance for non-public companies (public companies have reported under these standards since 2018). This global standard –Revenue from Contracts with Customers— jointly authored by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), and counterpart, International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), creates a framework for revenue recognition consistent with performance and entitlement.
While changes to the timing and amount of revenue businesses recognize will vary depending on the type of contracts they execute, the need to reconfigure accounting/ ERP systems will be broad-based. As a primer to meeting the new rev rec standards, and managing a contract portfolio, we have considered six objectives for your ERP. We look forward to discussing these objectives with you, and helping you to consider your preparedness for ASC 606.

New Revenue Recognition Standards ASC 606
As CFO’s prepare to address the new Standard for revenue recognition as required by ASC 606, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers,” they will need to adopt new tactics for managing revenue, and systems to support the Standard. Not only are the narratives of “when? and “how much?” revenue to recognize changed, but broader changes in the economy including subscriptions, pricing models, and disclosures driving changes in how CFO’s maintain their financial systems to support operations and reporting.
We have summarized the core principal, and information relevant to the upcoming changes to both the FASB and IASB treatment of revenue recognition for your review. We look forward to discussing these changes with you, and helping you to consider your preparedness for ASC 606.
