New CCH Accounting Research Manager White Paper Examines Revised FASB Proposal on Revenue Recognition
(RIVERWOODS, ILL., January 27, 2012) – With updated guidance from the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), it’s imperative for professionals to stay on top of potential accounting and financial reporting changes stemming from the FASB’s revised proposed Accounting Standards Update (ASU) titled, Revenue Recognition (Topic 605): Revenue from Contracts with Customers. In a new CCH white paper, A Closer Look, The FASB’s Revised Proposal on Revenue Recognition. CCH clearly and easily explains the depth and breadth of the proposed changes. CCH, a Wolters Kluwer business is a leading global provider of tax, accounting and audit information, software and services (CCHGroup.com).
The white paper was authored by the CCH Accounting Research Manager® (ARM) editorial team in collaboration with Scott Taub, a former Deputy Chief Accountant at the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). During his tenure at the SEC, Taub periodically served as Acting Chief Accountant and is currently the author of the renowned CCH publication, Revenue Recognition Guide. ARM helps professionals understand and comply with rapidly changing accounting, auditing, governmental, SEC and internal controls standards, including fair value measurements, the FASB Codification, uncertain tax positions, Sarbanes-Oxley and other pertinent topics.
“Because the revised revenue proposal would basically replace virtually all the standard guidance on revenue recognition with a single model applying to all contracts with customers, it’s critical that professionals have a clear, concise source that carefully explains the proposed changes,” said Mark Friedlich, CCH Director of Publishing, Accounting and Audit. “This new white paper presents in-depth details of the revised FASB proposal in an easy-to-follow format with summary tables and timelines for quick understanding of how businesses of all sizes may be impacted.”
