Description

This is a hybrid session. You have the option to attend this live in-person or online via Zoom. Please select accordingly at registration.

FRS 115 – Revenue from Contracts with Customers requires the use of a five-step revenue recognition model that is appliable to contracts with customers.

Many Accountants and Auditors still grapple with various challenging aspects in Revenue Recognition. This seminar, through the format of commonly asked questions, aims to provide clarity and insight on challenging issues in FRS 115.

Programme Outline

  • What kind of revenue contracts are excluded from FRS 115?
  • My company provide assets for use by customers, should the revenue accounting follow FRS115 – Revenue from Contracts with Customers or FRS 116 – Leases?
    • Provision of co-working space
    • Chartering of vehicles
  • What is the duration of the contract if my contracts with customers cover a fixed period and include early termination clause:
    • Which allows the contract to be terminated at any time by either party without compensating the other party?
    • Which allows the contract to be terminated by the customers but the customers would have to pay a substantial penalty to terminate the contract?
  • My contracts with customers cover both provision of goods and services. Are these a single performance obligation or multiple performance obligations?
  • My contracts with customers cover multiple months but invoices are billed monthly. Can I recognise revenue based on the invoices billed?
  • My contracts with customers include late performance penalty. Is the penalty recognised only when incurred?
  • My contracts with customers allow a volume rebate if the customers’ order exceed a pre-agreed volume within a pre-agreed date. Is this volume rebate recognised as expense when incurred?
  • My contracts with customers allow customers to return the goods within a specified period. How should the return be accounted for?
  • My contracts with customers involving delivering goods and services for an extended period of time. Should the revenue be recognised based on stage of completion or recognised at the end of the contract?
  • What are the different methods of determining stage of completion for revenue to be recognised over time?
  • Are there alternative methods if I have issues with the cost-to-cost method in determining stage of completion:
    • Significant third party cost
    • Difficulty in identifying cost overrun and revising cost budgets
  • The amounts I billed my customers exceed the revenue recognised to-date. How should I account for the difference?
  • The amounts I billed my customers are lower than the revenue recognised to-date. How should I account for the difference?
  • What if my customers change the specifications after the commencement of the contract? Is this a contract modification or are the changes a new separate contract?
