This chapter discusses how to allocate the transaction price to the separate performance obligations in a contract.

ASC 606-10-32-28

The objective when allocating the transaction price is for an entity to allocate the transaction price to each performance obligation (or distinct good or service) in an amount that depicts the amount of consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for transferring the promised goods or services to the customer.

Many contracts involve the sale of more than one good or service. Such contracts might involve the sale of multiple goods, goods followed by related services, or multiple services. The transaction price in an arrangement must be allocated to each separate performance obligation so that revenue is recorded at the right time and in the right amounts. The allocation could be affected by variable consideration or discounts. Refer to RR 3 for further information regarding identifying performance obligations.
