Revenue Recognition (ASC 606)

Our Approach

Many companies are waiting for public enterprises to tackle the new GAAP revenue recognition standards before addressing their own reporting requirements. However, if you don’t take the first step – analyzing the impact the new standards will have on your specific business – you don’t know what awaits you.

You can’t be sure that your finance team can implement the required changes on time because you don’t know the extent of the changes you will have to make. Even more compelling is the impact the new revenue accounting rules will have on your business’ forecasting, key performance metrics, accounting policies, financial reporting and budgeting. As your business anticipates the compliance demands for ASC 606 and IFRS 15, avoidance is not the answer. The time for action is now.

Armanino’s team of seasoned auditors, accountants and consultants have extensive revenue recognition compliance and documentation experience, as well as technology and process improvement expertise to support you.
