Technical Accounting

Revenue Recognition (ASC 606)

Many companies are waiting for public enterprises to tackle the new GAAP revenue recognition standards before addressing their own reporting requirements. However, if you don’t take the first step – analyzing the impact the new standards will have on your specific business – you don’t know what awaits you.

Our Approach

Extensive Experience to Support You on Road to Compliance

You can’t be sure that your finance team can implement the required changes on time because you don’t know the extent of the changes you will have to make. Even more compelling is the impact the new revenue accounting rules will have on your business’ forecasting, key performance metrics, accounting policies, financial reporting and budgeting. As your business anticipates the compliance demands for ASC 606 and IFRS 15, avoidance is not the answer. The time for action is now.

Armanino’s team of seasoned auditors, accountants and consultants have extensive revenue recognition compliance and documentation experience, as well as technology and process improvement expertise to support you.

Revenue Recognition Gap Assessment Services

  • Analysis: Armanino delivers a side-by-side comparison of current processes versus compliance required by the new revenue recognition GAAP regulations.
  • Planning and Documentation: We provide a comprehensive memo with a plan to address the discrepancies uncovered by the analysis. The memo will include:
    • Gap analysis
    • Potential exposure for the company
    • Areas of the company affected by the new standard and what needs to change
    • Impact on existing metrics as well as budgeting and forecasting
    • Changes to contract terms and conditions
    • High-level dates to meet the implementation and reporting deadline
  • Roadmap to Compliance: We focus on people, process and technology augmentation and improvements that will be necessary to adhere to ASC 606 and IFRS 15 along with a timeline to implement. This analysis allows CFOs to report to the Executive Team and Board on next steps and required investments to meet the new revenue accounting regulatory deadlines.
