We have assigned the 150 license, so book at the time of sale: For licensors: Learn as much as possible about your licensees. Through proper due diligence, licensors can learn how the licensee works. It is important to ensure that the licensee`s business and accounting/control systems are structured in such a way that they can meet the financial provisions of your license. However, if the customer can no longer continue to operate without an update or if the product functionality is down, the license is not separable. In addition, the provision of the licence shall not entail any substantial modification or adaptation of the pre-opening services that the licensee has already received. The definition of the nature of the investigation period as a right of use or right of access has an impact on the date of the achievement of turnover. In particular, revenues generated by intellectual property licenses believed to offer a right to use the IP are accounted for at the time control is transferred in accordance with CSA 606-10-25-30 (see RevenueHub article on determining the transfer of control).

These licenses follow the guidelines for achieving revenue in the period ASC 606-10-25-31 to 37 (see RevenueHub article on achieving revenue over time and input versus production methods).

Outside of accounting, Andrew enjoys playing guitar and walking around with his wife and two children.

For symbolic intellectual property, the value comes from the past or ongoing activities of the company issuing the license. The licensing body provides both the use of the intellectual property and the support or maintenance of the intellectual property in a single performance obligation. Supporting and maintaining symbolic IP includes implementing activities that enhance the value of IP or preventing activities that would reduce the value of IP. Examples of symbolic intellectual property are trademarks, trademarks and franchises. Token intellectual property licenses are still considered access rights and, therefore, revenues from these rights are always recorded over time. The implementation instructions in ASC 606-10-55-54 to 55-64A apply only to the IP license and not to the sale of IP.
