Analysis of Revenues

Difficulty: Advanced


Revenue Recognition Accounting Policy

General Motors adopted ASU 2014-09 on January 1, 2018, which requires General Motors to recognize revenue when a customer obtains control rather than when General Motors has transferred substantially all risks and rewards of a good or service. General Motors adopted ASU 2014-09 by applying the modified retrospective method to all noncompleted contracts as of the date of adoption. The comparative information has not been restated and continues to be reported under the accounting standards in effect for those periods.
