ABSTRACT

This series of four short cases is designed to help students develop the skills to research the Financial Accounting Standards Board's (FASB) Accounting Standards Codification and other authoritative literature. It also is designed to help improve students' ability to analyze and critique the complex issues that often surround the accounting for revenue recognition. The case scenarios describe transactions in which students must decide whether, when, and how much revenue to recognize. The issues analyzed involve bill-and-hold, multiple-element arrangements, gross versus net revenue reporting, and sales incentives. The cases are also designed to improve teamwork and communication skills. The sequence of cases is intended for use in an intermediate accounting class that covers revenue recognition, or in a capstone class that emphasizes critical thinking and research skills.
