Revenue recognition remains to be a topic of perennial interest in 2012 as it affects almost all companies. In an effort to resolve incongruent accounting standards and practices on revenue recognition, FASB and IASB have proposed new revenue recognition standards through an Exposure Draft in 2011. These new standards, if enacted, would result in the most broad reaching and fundamental changes to the recognition of revenue in businesses moving forward.
The Knowledge Group is producing a two-hour live webcast to help companies gain a complete understanding of the nuts and bolts of the proposed standards and its potential impact on their businesses. Changes to Revenue Recognition in 2012 is a must attend event for accountants, finance executives and managers, corporate attorneys and other related professionals.
