On December 13, 2016, the Center for Audit Quality (CAQ) of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) released the publication "Preparing for the New Revenue Recognition Standard: A Tool for Audit Committees".

The publication is a tool to help audit committees assess a company’s implementation of the new revenue recognition standard. It is organized into four sections:

  • Understanding the New Revenue Recognition Standard – What Is It?
  • Evaluating the Company’s Impact Assessment – How Will Revenue Recognition Change?
  • Evaluating the Implementation Project Plan – How Do We Need to Prepare?
  • Other Implementation Considerations – What Else Do We Need to Consider?

In addition to key questions for audit committees, the tool offers a list of resources on revenue recognition.
