Revenue Recognition: Fundamental Principles (Portfolio 5100)

  • This Portfolio analyzes the general and “fundamental” principles of revenue recognition. The Portfolio surveys the concept of revenue recognition, the relevant accounting literature, and the methodology of researching a revenue recognition issue.

Description

Portfolio 5100-2nd, Revenue Recognition: Fundamental Principles (Accounting Policy and Practice Series), represents the first of a series of Portfolios on revenue recognition. This Portfolio analyzes general principles governing revenue recognition. A number of revenue recognition principles apply to all types of transactions, whether they involve products or services and whether they are completed in one step or involve a long-term contract. This Portfolio refers to these principles as “fundamental principles.”

The Portfolio surveys the concept of revenue recognition, the relevant accounting literature, and the methodology of researching a revenue recognition issue. The Portfolio discusses in detail the four basic recognition criteria – persuasive evidence of an arrangement; delivery of goods or performance of services; fixed or determinable sales price; and reasonably assured collectibility. The Portfolio also discusses accounting for nonmonetary transactions; reporting revenue gross v. net; measuring revenue when the consideration is stock; determining whether certain amounts collected by a vendor should be included in revenue; determining whether certain types of discounts or sales incentives should be recorded as a reduction in revenue; and principles related to financial statement disclosure.

In addition, the Portfolio analyzes multiple-element arrangements. Transactions involving multiple elements must be analyzed to identify the deliverables (if any) that must be examined separately with respect to revenue recognition. This Portfolio analyzes when a transaction is considered a multiple-element arrangement; how to determine the separate units of accounting within a multiple-element arrangement; and how to allocate the total arrangement consideration among the units of accounting.
