SFRS (I) 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers and its Application to the Construction Industry

Expert Speaker Tan Yee Peng

$535.00 (including GST)



The new revenue standard – effective 1 January 2018 – is likely to affect the way the construction industry account for revenue, whether in terms of timing or amount. The old and familiar FRS 11 Construction Contracts is withdrawn and the construction industry has effectively lost its contract accounting rulebook; construction companies would now have to abide by the same principles of the generic revenue standard.

This one-day workshop aims to provide you with an overview of the new revenue standard and a discussion of the key issues impacting your industry.
