Test your financial reporting skills on the Revenue Recognition Challenge game

Congratulations! You've just been hired as the new CFO of Worldwide Faulty Enterprises where Murphy's Law is a corporate value. Only you can save the company and resuscitate its stock price.

The Revenue Recognition Challenge is a new game about the complexities of revenue recognition. There are three key concepts presented in the game:

  • Careful judgments are required to make the right revenue recognition and deferred revenue decisions.

  • Constant vigilance is needed to keep revenue recognition up to date with business activities and events.

  • Having an accurate picture of future revenue streams helps you make better strategic decisions about your business.

    Consider the ramifications of signing a contract to produce a reality television show, distribute the DVD to your company's Oscar-winning global warming documentary, expanding the capacity of your baseball park by adding executive suites, or produce a wine at your vineyard that receives lukewarm reviews from the critics.

    You can play the Revenue Recognition Challenge game online, at no charge. The Revenue Recognition Challenge game was produced by RevenueRecognition.com and is sponsored by Softrax.
