Some common pitfalls of applying HKFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers

HKFRS 15 “Revenue from Contracts with Customers” establishes principles for reporting useful information to users of financial statements about the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from an entity’s contracts with customers. HKFRS 15 supersedes HKAS 11 “Construction Contracts”, HKAS 18 “Revenue” and four other Interpretations and became effective from 1 January 2018. This 1.5-hour seminar is a practical sharing of some common pitfalls of applying HKFRS 15 and it includes some sharing on specific guidance in HKFRS 15: 


§ Principal versus agent considerations
