Recognizing Revenue in Governmental Funds
Chapter Overview
The discussion of revenue recognition begins by explaining the relationship between measurement focus and basis of accounting. We can focus on anywhere from a single asset (e.g. cash) to a wide range of assets (e.g. all economic resources). The range of assets that we choose to focus on automatically establishes the basis of accounting. If we focus on cash, we will use a cash basis of accounting; if on all economic resources then we will be on a full accrual basis. If we focus on a limited range of net assets (e.g. cu
ent financial resources) then we will use a basis of accounting in between the cash and full accrual (i.e. a modified accrual basis of accounting).
Per Section 1600 of the GASB Codification, the measurement focus and basis of accounting is described and justified as established by the National Council of Governmental Accountants adopted by the GASB, and which underlies the fund statements. Revenue cannot be recognized until it is both “measurable and available to finance EXPENDITURES of the fiscal period.”
We need to review the basic provisions of GASB Statement No. 33. This will be accomplished by discussions of actual revenue recognition issues. We need to know when each of the revenues in question should be recognized. This leads to the question of what constitutes the significant event in the “earning” process, and when the resources to be received are available for expenditure. There is often a conflict between when the government has “earned” its revenues and when it can first spend them
The chapter discusses GASB Statements No. 63 and 65, both of which pertain to defe
ed inflows and outflows (introduced earlier).
We will cover the following revenues (using modified accrual accounting and full-accrual accounting as required in the government-wide statement of activities –Thus, each type of revenue will be analyzed using the modified accrual basis of accounting (used for the 5 governmental funds) and the government-wide financial statements (full accrual accounting per GASB Statement 34).

Exchange and Non exchange Revenues
Property taxes and fines are categorized under imposed non exchange revenues, as per the GASB statement no 33. Both of them are recognized in the same year of levy upon the assessed persons. Sales taxes and income taxes are also non exchange revenues categorized under derived tax revenues. Sales taxes are derived from the transactions associated with sales by the payers of taxes, while income taxes are derived from the transactions associated with the commercial transactions that produce income. Reimbursement (eligibility) grants are also non exchange revenue categorized under the defe
ed revenue. License fees are exchange revenues in which the assets of government entity are used by the tax payers, giving rise to revenue.
