Designed For

CPAs applying the changes to GAAP reporting found in ASU 2014-09-Revenue from Contracts with Customers or who have clients implementing the new standard.


The changes to revenue recognition under GAAP imposed by ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, normally would not directly impact tax reporting. However, many organizations may wish to attempt to have their tax reporting conform to their now revised financial statement reporting. In addition, changes made to section 451 by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act now impose an "at least as rapid" test to ensure revenue is not recognized later for tax than book purposes for income tax purposes.

This course looks at how the changes made by ASU 2014-09, either will create a situation where a taxpayer may wish to conform their reporting or where the taxpayer may be required to do so. In cases where a taxpayer wishes to make a change, learn how to determine if the option is available.


  • Accounting methods-what is the tax definition?
  • Revenue recognition under IRC section 451 for tax purposes.
  • Industries where ASU 2014-09 will significantly change revenue recognition.
  • IRS rulings on accounting method changes due to ASU 2014-09.
  • $25 million accounting method relief enacted by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
