Mechanics of Revenue Recognition

Mechanics of Revenue Recognition

A new article by Richard Werner and Brian Drumm of COINS,  The Mechanics of Revenue Recognition for Construction & Service Operations , appears in the September/October 2014 issue of CFMA Building Profits.

The article discusses the mechanics of the revenue recognition calculation process for both construction and service operations. It addresses issues raised by FASB/IASB Discussion Paper Preliminary Views on Revenue Recognition in Contracts with Customers  (Dec 2008) and FASB  Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2014-09 Revenue from Contracts with Customers  (Topic 606, May 2014).

Dick and Brian show that the new changes will not alter the basic philosophy of revenue recognition for construction, but rather will help clarify issues such as job partitioning and performance obligations related to revenue recognition.
