IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers 

IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers became applicable from 1 January 2018.

For the energy and resources industry, one such contract is a streaming agreement. This article looks at streaming agreements and the issues to consider in applying IFRS 15.
