Public companies based in the U.S. are choosing the less onerous (but riskier) of two possible methods for complying with new standards for recognizing revenue from customer contracts. This two-part series from Intelligize explores the new rules and provides insights for public companies subject to the new standards.
Nearly 12 years in the making, the new rules cut across all industries and have been called the regulatory change with the most profound impact on corporate finance since the Sarbanes-Oxley legislation at the start of the century.
In Part I of this important research, Intelligize Senior Director Rob Peters explores the impact of the new revenue recognition standards on public companies, and the SEC’s approach to enforcing them. Part I includes:
- An overview of revenue recognition changes
- Results from early and standard adopters of the new rules
- An analysis of the SEC’s response to adopters of the standard
Part II checks back in on the early adopters discussed in Part I to see how the adoption process has gone, and where SEC review has focused for both early and standard adopters.
In the follow-up, Rob Peters is joined by Intelligize’s Erin Connors. The two leverage public company filings, SEC correspondence and other data available on the Intelligize platform to detail the Commission’s investigative priorities and highlight significant compliance trends.
