The process for determining the nature of a pension contract has changed significantly from ASC 605 to ASC 606. Under CSA 605, instructions focused on whether the risks and revenues of the property had been transferred to the client. ASC 606 focuses on both the type of buyback rights and the difference between the purchase price and the initial selling price. This change in focus makes instructions easier, which can simplify some ambiguous situations under ASC 605.

This was a response to some of the respondents` comments that the purchase price of a put option is not always close to or close to the original selling price and that, in some sectors, the put option is only exercised after the initial sale and in some cases the repurchase price is lower than the original selling price, since the asset is not returned to the state in which it was sold. Therefore, the client may be considered authorized to use the asset until the put option is exerciseable and, at this point, the customer may choose to retain the asset or resell it to the entity. These cases seem more economically comparable to a lease agreement than to a right of return. Staff expressed concern that there may be a trade-off between the leasing standard and the performance standard at this time. Several board members expressed concern that the recommended wording of employees did not explicitly cover a time factor, a wear and tear factor or circumstances in which the repurchase price was significantly lower than the estimated market value, indicating that there was a sale and not a leasing transaction. The Boards of Directors provisionally approved the principle of the recommendation, but asked the staff to review the text to clarify matters by including references to a time factor and to strongly encourage the client to return the assets.

Some board members indicated that this could lead to situations in which the performance standard would refer to the company at the leasing level, although the company`s products/services (for example). B intangible assets) become an area of application.
