A new working draft issued Tuesday by the AICPA Financial Reporting Executive Committee addresses a consideration for broker-dealers related to FASB’s new revenue recognition standard.

When completed, the working draft will be added to the AICPA’s Revenue Recognition Guide. The issue is Broker-Dealer Issue No. 3-2, Selling and Distribution Fee Revenue.

Informal feedback on the issue may be submitted by March 1 to Ivory Bare at Ivory.Bare@aicpa-cima.com.
