Case Study in Revenue Recognition Policy

Abstract: This case presents students with the challenge of using critical thinking skills to assess the best revenue recognition policy for a hazardous waste disposal firm. It also requires that students write the revenue recognition portion of the footnote on the firmas significant accounting practices. As many nations adopt more principle-based accounting standards, it becomes critical that students develop their judgment skills during their education. This case requires students to use those skills and also to work on explaining accounting practices in such a way that a user of the financial statements can readily understand those practices.
