Will You be Ready for New Revenue Recognition Reporting in January 2019?


Let our Revenue Recognition Sherpas walk you through ASC 606 planning and implementation.


Virtually every business in the U.S. will need to have plans in place and begin using new revenue recognition and reporting practices in less than six months to comply with the new ASC 606 standard by December 31, 2019.

Time is Running Out to Prepare for ASC 606

The new revenue recognition standard, also known as ASC 606, is the biggest change to U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) in decades. It requires that businesses change how revenue and certain costs are identified, recognized, recorded and presented on both balance sheets and income statements, and significantly expands revenue disclosures. The December 31, 2019 deadline means businesses should begin using the new processes on January 1, 2019 so adequate information is available for year-end disclosures. The effects of ASC 606 will be felt throughout companies and every department will need to be prepared to ensure a smooth transition.
