New AASB 15 (Part 1) – identifying the contract and performance obligations

Entities supplying goods and services need to understand and start to implement AASB 15 Revenue from Customer Contracts. This year marks the start of the comparative period, decision-making about transition arrangements and construction of the third balance. Internal accounting policies will need to be drafted and systems information modified to produce AASB 15-compliant information. This session, the first of three in the series, will cover steps one and two of a five-step revenue-recognition process. Step one asks the questions:

  • What is a contract? and
  • Who is the consumer?
  • It also examines aggregation of contracts and contract modifications. Step 2 asks:
  • What is a performance obligation and what isn’t? and
  • What makes a performance obligation distinct?
