CPA Canada study of the impact of adopting the new revenue standard

Published on: Oct 31, 2018

Canadian public companies with calendar year ends began applying a new accounting standard for revenue recognition in the first quarter of 2018. The highly anticipated new standard IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers, and its US GAAP equivalent ASC 606, introduced a significantly different accounting model for revenue recognition.

It was expected to have a significant effect on many companies. CPA Canada conducted this study to better understand the impacts of the adoption of the new standard on the financial statements of Canadian companies.
