Company X sells software products to clients. A client approaches for a specialized software which X outsources to a sub-contractor. The software's cost would be say $2,500.


As at the year end, sub-contractor has not completed the product yet and they have been paid an advance amount of $1,000.


Could someone let me know

1). Which IFRS standard applies for this transaction.

2). Entries to be passed current year (Software not completed/delivered yet).

3). Entries to be passed after product is delivered.


Thank you.

1. This belongs to Revenue Recognition standard. Principal- Agent relationship.

2. In whose books? X company?
