Revenue recognition – and the finance team that applies it - often ends up being the bane of creative sales deals, seen as cramping the sales department’s ability to maximize the amount of money that they bring in the door.  This is the natural result of the very different goals of finance and sales.  Finance is responsible for adhering to the current guidance from the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) and the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), and for how new bookings move to the profit and loss statement.  Sales, on the other hand, is focused on the sale – and any related incentives - and how much money is brought in based on the sale.
