Join Us for Our Next GovCon Webinar: Revenue Recognition

Join Government Contracting Services experts Perry Kessler and Ricky White for a FREE webinar as they share insights on how to evaluate your current financial reporting processes for compliance with the new standard.

DATE: September 13, 2017

TIME: 1:00 P.M. – 2:00 P.M. EDT


Why you should attend:

The new revenue recognition standard eliminates the transaction and industry-specific revenue recognition guidance under current GAAP and replaces it with a principle-based approach for determining revenue recognition. Some of the issues expected to specifically affect government contracting firms are as follows:

  • Identifying the unit(s) of account – contracts vs. performance obligations
  • Variable consideration – accounting for award/incentive fees and claims
  • Satisfaction of a performance obligation over time – reassessing if percentage of completion is still effective
  • Contract modifications – changes to the current accounting practices

What you will learn:

You will come away with an understanding of the model set out under the new revenue recognition standard and challenges facing the government contracting industry as a result of its issuance. You will also gain insights on where to focus as you evaluate current financial reporting processes for compliance with the new standard.
