    I apologize if this is the wrong forum for this question. My question is related to the ASC 606, the new revenue recognition standard. The steps for this standard are:
    (1) Identify the contract
    (2) Identify performance obligations
    (3) Identify the transaction prices
    (4) Allocate (3) based on (2).
    (5) Recognize revenue as promises are fulfilled.

    I read on this website (https://sfmagazine.com/post-entry/february-2016-recognizing-software-revenue/)
    that the old standard uses VSOE and the new uses SSP.

    But what is the main difference between VSOE and SSP? I researched but they are both standalone prices if the products were to be sold independently rather than as a bundle.
    How will this new standard impact the software industry on average?

    AUD - 92
    BEC - NINJA in Training
    FAR - 90
    REG - 88
    If you think you failed, you passed.
