Addressing Warranties When Implementing The New Revenue Recognition Standards

A warranty is a separate performance obligation if the warranty can be purchased separately.

What implementation issues surround accounting for warranties? Here are a few questions to ask yourself to determine how to minimize matters for this area of implementation:

  • Who in the organization will evaluate the contracts to determine what warranties need to be separate individual performance obligations?
  • Who will assign a transaction price to the warranty?
  • What method will be used to calculate a transaction price for the warranty?
  • What system changes need to be made in order to comply with accounting for a warranty as a separate performance obligation?
  • Do any changes need to be made in internal controls to properly account for warranties?
