explain IFRS 15 Revenue From Contracts With Customers?
Revenue is an important number to users of financial statements in assessing an entity’s financial performance and position. However, previous revenue recognition requirements in International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) differed from those in US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (US GAAP) and both sets of requirements were in need of improvement. Previous revenue recognition requirements in IFRS provided limited guidance and, consequently,the two main revenue recognition Standards, IAS 18 and IAS 11, could be difficult to apply to complex transactions. In addition, IAS 18 provided limited guidance on many important revenue topics such as accounting for multiple-element arrangements. In contrast, US GAAP comprised broad revenue recognition concepts together with numerous revenue requirements for particular industries or transactions, which sometimes resulted in different accounting for economically similar transactions.
