5 Back-up October 2006 Deutsches Rechnungslegungs Standards German Accounting Standards Committee e. V. ® General Problems arising -From a conceptual perspective -Recourse to the realization principle in IAS 18 is said to be contradictory to the definition of revenues in the framework (income = measurable changes of assets and liabilities) -Application of IAS 18 can lead to recognition of deferred assets and deferred liabilities which do not meet the definition of assets and liabilities -From a practical perspective -Content of the realization principle often unclear (as evidenced by the need for extensive additional explanations in the appendix of IAS 18) -How to account for multiple element arrangements?
