IPSAS - Revenues and Expenses (online)

Course code: 3904e

Introduction

This module will cover revenue and expense recognition under IPSAS. Public sector entities can derive revenue from exchange and non-exchange transactions (see figure below). IPSAS 9 Revenue from Exchange Transactions is the current standard to be applied when determining how and when revenue should be recognized for exchange transactions. IPSAS 9 sets the principles for the recognition of revenue arising from the sale of goods and the rendering of services. IPSAS 23 Revenue from Non-Exchange Transactions (taxes and transfers) prescribes the requirements for accounting and reporting for revenue arising from non-exchange transactions. Common sources of non-exchange revenue in the public sector include taxes and transfers. The difference between exchange and non-exchange transactions is the substance rather than the form of the transaction. It should also be noted that within the public sector revenue transactions can include both exchange and non-exchange components. IPSAS 11 on Construction Contracts sets out the principles for the recognition of revenue arising from long-term construction contracts. In order to cover the accounting for revenue generating transactions this chapter will include IPSAS 23, IPSAS 9, and IPSAS 11.

This module answers questions such as:

  • What is the difference between exchange and non-exchange revenue?
  • How to classify transactions as exchange or non-exchange revenue?
  • How to comprehend the recognition and measurement of both exchange and non-exchange revenues?
  • What are the disclosure requirements for revenues?
  • How to understand expense recognition under IPSAS?
