  • Summary
  • CPE Information
  • Presenters
BDO USA, LLP invites you and your colleagues to a complimentary CPE-qualified webinar on the new revenue recognition standard that is poised to change the way restaurants, especially franchisors, recognize their revenue.

The new standard will result in a significant change in the accounting for upfront franchise fees and area development fees charged by franchisors. While franchisees and other owner/operators are not expected to experience the same far-reaching changes from implementing the new standard, some of the changes, in particular those related to the treatment of loyalty programs, may require system changes.

Join us on Thursday, October 26 to hear how the new standard will impact your restaurant operation and what you should be doing today to prepare. 
Webinar Learning Objectives:
  • Describe the core principles and key steps to applying ASC 606
  • Recognize significant areas of judgment required by ASC 606
  • Apply the concepts in ASC 606 to franchise agreements, including upfront franchise fees
