...Introduction Revenue is defined in IFRS as “the gross inflow of economic benefits during the period arising in the course of the ordinary activities of an entity when those inflows result in increases in equity, other than increases relating to contributions from equity participants”. The principles for recognising revenue are clarified by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) when both of the boards have affiliated. The boards are forming a new model to improve financial reporting by providing clearer guidance on when an entity should recognise revenue, and by reducing the number of standards to which entities have to refer. History of Australia’s policy before the adoption of IFRS In July 2004, the AASB 118 was issued. AASB 118 Revenue is equivalent to IAS 18 of the same name as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board. AASB 118 has a specific purpose which was to recommend the accounting treatment of revenue from certain types of transactions. Entities are allowed to practice the standard for yearly reporting periods which begins on or after 1 January 2005. Paragraphs 9 and 30 were amended by AASB 2007-2 and was applicable to annual reporting periods on or after 28 February 2007, whereas AASB 2007-4 amended paragraph 21 and was applicable from 1 July 2007; both of which considers early adoption from 1 January 2005.

...Introduction and overall performance Revenue is a term primarily used in the United States to describe the amount of money a company generates in a set period of time through the sale of products and/or services.

...Revenue is defined in the Framework for the Preparation and Presentation of Financial Statements (2008) as increase in economic benefits during the accounting period in the form of inflows or enhancements of assets or decrease of liabilities that result in increase in equity, other than those relating to contributions from equity participants. Revenue is measured at the fair value of the consideration received or receivable taking into account the amount of any trade discounts and volume rebates allowed by the entity. An entity usually determines the amount of revenue arising on a transaction by referring to the agreement between the entity and the buyer or user of the asset (Lam & Lau 2009). There have few types of revenue recognition such as from sale of goods, the rendering of services and interest, royalties and dividends. Whereas, some of factors need to be considered when determining when revenue should be recognized in measuring the income of a business enterprise (Lam & Lau 2009). First, the selling price to buyer is fixed or determinable when customer does not have the unilateral right to terminate or cancel the contract and received a cash refund. From the theory, revenue should not be recognized until the refund rights have expired or the specified future events have occurred. However, revenues can be recognized on a pro rata basis if assuming that the amount of refunds can be reliably estimated based on past experience and industry data (Bragg 2010). But,......

...Total Revenue, Average Revenue and Marginal Revenue Wealth-maximizing Each seller has sufficient market power to set the selling price higher and sell less OR set the selling price lower and sell more The demand curve facing the price searcher is downward sloping Total revenue ( TR ) is the total amount of money(or some other good) that a firm receives from the sale of its goods. It the firm practices single pricing rather than price discrimination, TR = total expenditure of the consumer = P x Q Average revenue ( AR ) is the total amount of money(or some other good) that a firm receives from the sale divided by the number of units of goods sold. AR = TR/Q, since TR=P x Q, then AR = P for single pricing practice And since MUV = DD = P, then MUV = DD = P = AR Marginal revenue ( MR ) is the change in total revenue resulting from selling an extra unit of goods. MR = TR/Q, where TR = change in TR due to change in Q, Q = change in Q To find T R from the M R curve For a certain known quantity transacted, the area under the MR and above the horizontal axis is the T R . (I.e. the sum of the Marginal Revenues of all units of goods.) The slope of the TR curve is MR. Why? And, MR is always smaller Price for single pricing arrangement (I.e. MR < P) Why? (Hint MR<AR, AR=P for single pricing) For a certain known quantity transacted, the area under the MR and above the horizontal axis is the T R . (I.e. the sum of the Marginal Revenues of all......

Revenue Recognition

...To Recognize or Not to Recognize Revenue – That is the Question. Revenue recognition issues are the subjects of headlines in our daily newspapers, primarily because major corporations have recognized revenues that did not actually exist. Just when we think we have all the bad news, another corporation is restating earnings for prior years. For a cash only business, revenue recognition is a simple process. A sale equals revenue. The more complex the business, the more specialized the industry, the more difficult the decision becomes for that business as to when to recognize earnings. On its mission to establish and improve standards of financial accounting and reporting for the guidance and education of the public, including issuers, auditors and users of financial information, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) added to its agenda in 2002 a project designed to develop a comprehensive Statement of Financial Accounting Standards that will focus on revenue recognition that will apply to all industries. Revenue recognition guidance exists throughout accounting literature, accounting and audit guides and audit risk alerts for specific industries and the SEC's SAB 104. Yet there is no one comprehensive source. FASB issued WHY IS REVENUE RECOGNITION SO IMPORTANT? In its October 2002 Report on Financial Statement Restatement, the GAO said that restatements for improper revenue recognition resulted in larger drops in market capitalization than any...

Joy fitness is currently faced with a problem of earning low revenue and wants to seek for a business loan. It is an important requirement for any business to submit all their financial transaction to the financial institutions before the loan is rewarded. Therefore, Joy Fitness must prepare the trading profit and loss account together with other necessary documents for financial institution to consider offering the loan. The amount of loan to be given depends on the amount of returns the company gets or the available assets for an institution to consider their capability to pay. the business owner ask the business accountant to recognize the revenue related to the membership dues, the revenue from the coupon books sold, and the machines that have been sold which is against GAAPS guidelines (Albrecht et al 2011).
