Financial reporting suite: Revenue - Workshop 2018

IFRS 15 “Revenue for contracts with customers” will be effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2018 and will replace several existing standards and interpretations, including IAS 18 “Revenue” and IAS 11 “Construction Contracts”.

IFRS 15 establishes 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 new standard, which centres on a single, principles based five-step model, provides a framework of broad revenue recognition concepts that can be consistently applied to a wide range of transactions and industries.

In this workshop, we will revisit some of the core principles of the new revenue standard, IFRS 15 “Revenue from contracts with customers”. This workshop will help participants to understand and apply the recognition and disclosure requirements of the new standard, with an emphasis on applying the requirements of the new five-step revenue recognition model. It will also cover some of the key areas of potential change, as well as some of the more challenging aspects of the new revenue standard.


Key topics covered:

  • An overview of IFRS 15, including an outline of details about its scope.
  • Recognition of revenue under IFRS 15 with an emphasis on the five-step revenue recognition model
  • Key disclosure requirements relating to the new standard
  • Specific application issues and areas of potential changes or challenges, such as accounting for variable consideration and principal versus agent considerations.
