Heads Up — FASB makes narrow-scope amendments to revenue standard and provides practical expedients

Published on: May 11, 2016

This Heads Up discusses FASB Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2016-12, "Narrow-Scope Improvements and Practical Expedients," which amends certain aspects of the Board's May 2014 revenue standard (ASU 2014-09, "Revenue From Contracts With Customers"). The amendments address certain implementation issues identified by the FASB's transition resource group and clarify, rather than change, the new revenue standard's core revenue recognition principles.
