Deferred Revenue Management

Deferred Revenue is an advance payment recorded on the beneficiary's balance sheet as a liability account until either the administrations/services have been rendered or the products have been conveyed. In other words, deferred revenue is an advance payment received by a company. However, it is not yet revenues so cannot be reported on the income statement. Deferred revenue thus acts as a liability account since it alludes to income that has not yet been earned. However, as products and services are conveyed over time, the income is recognized and posted on the income statement.
