Surgent's Challenges in Implementing Topic 606 for Entities with Long-Term Construction Projects (LTC4)

Description:

Change is definitely coming. For those entities who currently recognize revenue under the guidance of Statement of Position 81-1, Accounting for Performance of Construction-Type and Certain Production-Type Contracts (SOP 81-1), understanding the basics of Topic 606 is not enough. In order to assess the impact of adopting Topic 606, you need a detailed understanding of whether you can recognize revenue over time under Topic 606 or not. Plus, applying the other steps of Topic 606's five-step revenue recognition model could also result in entities making changes to their current revenue recognition approaches.

With Topic 606's effective date right around the corner, now is the time to get the answers to your implementation questions. In this course, we'll explore Topic 606 from the perspective of entities that currently recognize revenue under SOP 81-1, highlighting any areas of potential change in your current approach when you adopt Topic 606, such as identifying performance obligations and when and how you recognize revenue. Applying Topic 606 to your long-term contracts will definitely change your revenue recognition approach. This course will help you determine how big that change will be.
