IFRS 15 - Revenue from contracts with customers

Before the classroomsession participants receive an e-learn ‘Revenue Standard’:
This program is designed to help you understand and apply the accounting principles of the five-step model. Upon completion of this module you will be able to decide if the item of income is in the scope of the standard; identify the contract with the customer; identify the performance obligations in the contract; allocate the transaction price and define the revenue recognition pattern.

This masterclass focuses on the introduction of IFRS 15, the revenue recognition standard, which has replaced the former standards IAS 18 and IAS 11. This new standard has been effective since 2018, the impact of the standard could be significant for many companies from both an accounting and processes perspective. The introduction of the new standard has three objectives:

  • to remove inconsistencies and weaknesses in existing revenue recognition standards by providing clear principles for revenue recognition in a robust framework;
  • to provide a single revenue recognition model which will improve comparability over a range of industries, companies and geographical boundaries;
  • to simplify the preparation of financial statements by reducing the number of requirements to which preparers must refer.

During this session we address the most important changes as compared to the former accounting requirements. It is important that companies understand the concept of IFRS15 and are able to apply this in relation to their own business and activities.

For whom?

The IFRS masterclasses are for professionals with a background in finance and who work in an accounting, reporting and/or controlling role and for everyone else who is interested in the practical application of IFRS. Basic accounting knowledge and experience is required to use the knowledge offered during these masterclasses to its utmost.
