As private companies prepare to implement the new ASC 606 revenue recognition standard, they face many decisions and potential challenges. What do the experiences of publicly held companies reveal about implementation? We’ll discuss:

An overview of the new ASC 606 standard, including the five-step model for recognizing revenue and concepts that do not exist under the current model.
Potential issues associated with data and IT systems, internal controls, financial control processes, and income taxes, among others.
A process for developing an implementation strategy, including common actions to take during different phases of implementation.
Participants will gain insights into the new standard’s requirements and learn practical steps for planning the implementation.

The new five-step revenue recognition model became effective for most public companies in 2018. Other companies — such as non-public US filers and non-calendar year-ends — face a later compliance deadline. Given the complexities and timing of implementation, many companies may also be revisiting their initial revenue recognition transition processes.
