Significant Change

Implementing the new FASB ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, is likely the most significant and comprehensive change for most entities and their auditors in many years. Auditors will emphasize procedures around revenue recognition in connection with annual private company audits covering the initial year of ASC 606 implementation.

Since ASC 606 is a principles-based standard, there are many more management estimates and judgments required compared to previous accounting standards. We’ve identified common challenges auditors face when auditing clients with revenue from contracts with customers and threats to auditor independence.

This webcast will teach you about the impact of the new standard and how to avoid common challenges in your audit engagements.
