Accounting Standards: Revenue, Leases, and Inventory

Author: Arturo Ramudo, CPA, CISA

For years, the FASB, along with the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), attempted to harmonize U.S. GAAP with the International Accounting Standards. While the Boards failed to meet their goal of fully harmonized accounting standards, the final projects resulted in the codification of the new Revenue, Leases, and Inventory standards.

With this two-hour course, you will:

  • Get a 50-page PDF manual
  • Determine the new complex and controversial revenue recognition standards;
  • Identify specific revenue-related issues, such as the new five-step revenue recognition model, time value implications, impact on the percentage of completion methodology, and client transition;
  • Recall a thorough analysis of the clarifying revenue-related Accounting Standard Updates (ASUs) issued by the FASB to help clarify and ease the revenue recognition implementation requirements. Topics include principal vs. agent consideration (ASU 2016-08), performance obligations, intellectual licensing, royalty based recognition (ASU 2016-10), and other revenue related topics;
  • Recall an examination of the new lease standards. Topics include the elimination of operating leases, mandatory balance sheet recognition, new lease types, exemptions, disclosures, and other lease-related topics;
  • Recall an assessment of the new inventory standards. Topics include the new inventory valuation methodologies and the impact the new standards will have on inventory cost assumptions such as FIFO, LIFO, average costs, and the Retail Inventory Method; and
  • Identify why the IRS's Conformity Requirements may have saved LIFO.
