ASU 2018-15 – Customer’s Accounting for Implementation Costs Incurred in a Cloud Computing Arrangement That Is a Service Contract (August 2018)
Customers of cloud computing arrangements may obtain a license to internal-use software. Those customers generally recognize an intangible asset for the software license in accordance with the guidance in Subtopic 350-40. A liability may be recognized in case payments for the license are made over time. Other arrangements may not transfer a license to the customer and must be treated as service arrangements and no asset or liability is recognized. The payments are expensed as incurred. ASU 2015-05 clarified the accounting for fees paid by customers of cloud computing arrangements that did not include a license to software. ASU 2018-15 addresses the accounting for implementation costs incurred by customers of cloud computing arrangements that are service arrangements, that is, no asset is recognized by the customer. ASU 2018-15 generally aligns the accounting for implementation costs for cloud computing arrangements that are service contracts with arrangements that include a license to software. This training is designed to help you identify implementation costs that are eligible for capitalization and develop a comprehensive financial reporting approach for cloud computing arrangements.
