My colleague, revenue will be ALWAYS be apart of financial reporting – know it!!! Especially as it relates to patient – serious you should be competent with IAS 18 revenue recognition.November 23, 2015 at 8:22 pm #284787lavinia69Participant

Although IFRS15 will replace IAS18 on 1st January 2017 you should be aware of both I think as you can use the new IFRS from now.
The new number 15 has the five step approach:
Under revenue recognition there are the ‘at’ and ‘over’ model as in the old IAS18 but more has been added to prevent creative accounting.
‘At’ is recognised at the point that risks and rewards and control transfers (and is the default model)
‘Over’ revenue is recognised over the period in accordance with completion. But this model is only permissible under three circumstances.
1) no alternative use
2) customer controlled asset (eg a maintence contract)
3) simultaneous consumption ( I like the idea of being at a concert but Graham Holt prefers gym membership as you consume its availability over the life of your membership)
If I have got anything wrong in the above, please correct me as I will be taking my exam in December. 🙂November 24, 2015 at 12:09 pm #284881November 24, 2015 at 12:31 pm #284888
Hi @cardine revenue recognition under IAS 18 is based on risk & reward however under IFRS 15 it is based on control.. both are different concepts and IAS 18 excluded from P2 syllabus so i’m unable to understand your reply.. please clarify.. thanksDecember 5, 2015 at 8:25 pm #287953DaveMember
