Chapter: 3 - Configuration tools in Accounting module

Deferred Expense Models

Another management tool in the Odoo Accounting module is the Deferred Expense Models which describe the expense aspects of the subscription-based products. As defined in the section of Deferred Revenue Models where the Deferred Revenue is connected with the aspects of the payment generated by the customers ahead of the product being delivered, which is mostly associated with the subscription-based products that are being defined. Here the Different Expenses will describe the expenses on the subscription-based products and services which are purchased for the various vendors.

The dedicated Deferred Expense Model menu can be accessed from the Configuration tab of the Accounting module where all the Deferred Expense Models are being defined. The Account Type of Deferred Expense Account will be current assets. Even though the company paid the amount for some services and for the ones which are not obtained and basically the paid amount creates expense. But as the payment is done for service and certain of them are yet to be delivered so in that case that deferred expense will be an asset for the company. And each year the asset will be reduced as the service is received. This will be recorded in the Asset section of the Balance Sheet. Here the Expense Name, Deferred Expense Account, Expense Account, the Number of Recognitions, and Period Length will be defined. You will also have the custom as well as default filtering and group by tools available.
