Revenue is the heart of all business performance. As we are aware the way that revenue is recorded and reported is also important for any business. This report records the revenue when your invoices are created and not necessarily when payment is received. This type of revenue recognition falls under accrual accounting principle.

 

In other words, the revenue earned is recognized on the company's accounting books regardless of when cash transactions have occurred.

 

Most importantly, this report shows the period revenue of an invoice based on the period selection.


 



The Revenue summary displays the summary of various sources of revenue for a selected period. The deferred revenue column is the Total invoice - Period Revenue of any invoice. Which is nothing but the unused period revenue.
