This course will assist you to understand and apply the recognition and disclosure requirements for IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers.  A key feature involves examining the five-step revenue recognition model, which entities are to apply in determining timing and amount of revenue to be recognised.

IFRS 15 establishes principles for reporting useful information to financial statement users about the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows from an entity’s contracts with customers. The aim of these principles is to provide a framework of broad revenue recognition concepts that can be consistently applied to a wide range of transactions and industries.
