1567398 - The Deferred Revenue at the Point of Invoice is Different from the Revenue Recognized during Revenue Recognition


After the delivery of the products to the customer, you create a customer invoice and post it to accounting. The system automatically posts the amounts to the corresponding deferral accounts for revenues. You notice that the amount credited to the Deferred Revenues account is XXX. Then, during the period-end closing, you start the revenue recognition run to reset the revenue and expense deferrals, and make sure the related sales order item is processed successfully. But when you check the respective journal entry, you find that the amount debited to the Deferred Revenues account is YYY not XXX.

XXX means the amount credited to the Deferred Revenues account.

YYY means the amount debited to the Deferred Revenues account.
