FRS 115 for the IT Industry: Practical Applications and Important Implications

Expert Speaker Chee Hay Kheong Daniel

$321.00 (including GST)



FRS 115 – Revenue from Contracts With Customers has changed the way many technology businesses account for their contracts. The new standard will be difficult to apply for the IT industry due to the fact that many entities will provide multiple goods and services to customers under one contract.

FRS 115 is far more complex than the previous FRS 18, and can drastically alter the pattern of revenue recognition and pattern of profit for companies applying the standard.  

Programme Outline

This practical workshop will cover the application of the requirements in FRS 115 for the IT industry, including:

  • Timing of Revenue Recognition
  • Timing of Revenue Recognition – Licences
  • Contracts that contain multiple goods and services
  • Contracts that have variable consideration
  • Contracts with right of return
  • Contract modification
  • Long term contracts
  • Principal vs agents

Cases will be used to illustrate the application of the above and the recording entries.

This workshop qualifies for 3.5 CPE hours in Financial Reporting Standards and Pronouncements (Category 1) .
