This Roadmap provides Deloitte’s insights into and interpretations of the guidance in ASC 606 on revenue from contracts with customers, the cost guidance in ASC 340-40, and the guidance in ASC 610-20 on gains and losses on transfers of nonfinancial and in-substance nonfinancial assets to noncustomers. The 2020 edition includes new guidance and examples that reflect recent standard-setting and SEC developments. In addition, we have reorganized much of the Roadmap’s content (e.g., by reformatting the Q&As of last year’s edition as narrative text) to present it in a more user-friendly manner. Appendix G of the Roadmap summarizes the key changes made in the 2020 edition and maps prior Roadmap Q&As to current Roadmap sections.
This Roadmap replaces the Deloitte Q&As that were contained in ASC 606. To find the text in the Roadmap that corresponds to a former Q&A, select the “Revenue” tab at the bottom of the Q&A to Roadmap Quick Reference Guide and search for the Q&A’s number or title.
