The Future of Revenue Accounting

The Future of Revenue Accounting (FoRA) Task Force has been looking into how the process of revenue accounting could be simplified for the industry as a whole if existing industry infrastructure could be leveraged by extending the scope of running many processes associated with revenue accounting centrally. This has the potential to reduce industry costs and effort by reducing or eliminating the volume of rejections and simplifying the process for future industry changes.
