Revenue recognition

Responding to challenges in the financial reporting standards of recognition of revenue from contracts with customers, the accounting Boards (IASB and FASB) have made substantial enhancements to the quality and consistency of how revenue is reported while also improving comparability in the financial statements of companies reporting using IFRS and US GAAP. Implementation of this standard for public entities, is fiscal year beginning December 15, 2017, and for non-public is for period beginning after December 31, 2018.  

Accounting for leases

Time has come up for private entities to adopt the accounting for leases standard, which core principle is that lessees  should recognize assets and liabilities arising from all leases  (except for leases with a lease term of 12 months or less and other arrangements considered outside the scope of this standard) which will affect significantly entities balance sheets.  Entities will have two choices for transition to new standard which is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019.
