For performance obligations satisfied at a
point in time, an entity is required to assess
when control has been transferred to the
customer by considering the following
indicators [AASB 15.38].

Customer has             Customer                  Customer has             Customer has            Entity has
legal title              has physical              significant risks        accepted the            present right
                         possession                and rewards of           goods/services          to payment
                                                   ownership

Not all of the above indicators need to be
present for an entity to conclude that it has
transferred control to a customer.

When evaluating whether a customer has
obtained control of the goods/services, an
entity should consider the existence of any
repurchase agreements [AASB 15.34].

Application guidance in specific circumstances

Repurchase agreements:                           Repurchase rights are an obligation or right to repurchase a good after it is sold to a
                                                 customer, which can take the form of a put option, a call option or a forward contract. The
                                                 existence of these clauses can have a significant impact on the accounting for the contract.
                                                 Depending on the facts and circumstances, the arrangement may be recorded as a sale, a
                                                 lease contract or as a financing agreement [AASB 15.B64–B76].

Customers’ unexercised                           When an entity receives a non-refundable prepayment from the customer, e.g. sale of gift
contractual                                      cards, gift certificates or lay-by sales, the customer has an unexercised right to receive
rights:                                          goods/services in the future, which some customers may not use (typically termed as
                                                 ‘breakage’). An entity is required to consider whether or not the customer will eventually
                                                 exercise their rights which will impact the entity’s pattern of revenue recognition
                                                 [AASB 15.B44–B47].

                                                 recognition [AASB 15.B77–B82].

Non-refundable upfront fees:                     If contracts include non-refundable upfront fees from customers, revenue recognition
                                                 should be delayed if the fees relate to future goods/services to be transferred to the
                                                 customer [AASB 15.B48–B51].

                                                 entity is required to assess the nature of the licence to determine whether to recognise
                                                 revenue at a point in time or over time [AASB 15.B52–B62]. An entity should recognise a
                                                 sales-based or usage-based royalty only on the occurrence of the subsequent sale or
                                                 usage [AASB 15.B63].

                                                                                                                                                21
