NOTE 4: SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES: Revenue Recognition (Policies)
|9 Months Ended|
Sep. 30, 2018
On January 1, 2018 the Company adopted guidance contained in Topic 606 (FASB ASC 606). The core principle of Topic 606 (FASB ASC 606) is that an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of goods of services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The revenue recognition guidance contained in Topic 606, to follow the five-step revenue recognition model along with other guidance impacted by this standard: (1) identify the contract with the customer; (2) identify the performance obligations in the contract; (3) determine the transportation price; (4) allocate the transportation price; (5) recognize revenue when or as the entity satisfies a performance obligation. Previous practices were broadly consistent with this approach, and the company determined the amount of revenue based on the amounts customer paid or promised to pay.
In April 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued an Accounting Standards Update (ASU) ASU 2016 10 Revenue from Contract with Customers: identifying Performance Obligations and Licensing. The amendments in this Update clarify the two following aspects (a) contracts with customers to transfer goods and services in exchange for consideration and (b) determining whether an entitys promise to grant a license provides a customer with either a right to use the entitys intellectual property (which is satisfied at a point in time) or a right to access the entitys intellectual property (which is satisfied over time). The amendments in this Update are intended to reduce the degree of judgment necessary to comply with Topic 606. The Company adopted this guidance.
Revenues from continuing operations recognized for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 amounted to $28,646 and $32,116, respectively.
Disclosure of accounting policy for revenue recognition. If the entity has different policies for different types of revenue transactions, the policy for each material type of transaction is generally disclosed. If a sales transaction has multiple element arrangements (for example, delivery of multiple products, services or the rights to use assets) the disclosure may indicate the accounting policy for each unit of accounting as well as how units of accounting are determined and valued. The disclosure may encompass important judgment as to appropriateness of principles related to recognition of revenue. The disclosure also may indicate the entity's treatment of any unearned or deferred revenue that arises from the transaction.
