How do we account for "unbilled revenue" from sales order ?

Posted on by 47

Hello everyone,

I am trying to find some information on how to set up Unbilled Revenue accounts in D365 F&O but i'm not finding the relevant documentation anywhere.

i'm not sure what the steps are to set up the Unbilled Revenue accounts, should these be set to a particular customer group maybe ? or will the system automatically detect there is an unbilled invoice and post that amount to the correct amount ?

The process, as we see it is the following:

  • Newly created sales orders must be confirmed to geenrate the unbilled revenue
  • When Orders are invoiced, unbilled revenue is automatically reversed, based on the portion of the order that is invoiced

I have tried to create and confirm a sales order for an item worth 3000 XX however i can't see any amount under "Invoice Remainder" when i click on "Line Quantity" in the related information, this leads me to think that i've surely missed a step somewhere in the setting

sorry if this is not clear, don't hesitate to ask me for follow-up questions,

thank you for your help

    The standard application can post a preliminary (internal or unbilled) revenue at the time you post the packing slip.

    This preliminary revenue is then reversed at the time the invoice is posted.

    To get this posting you need to make a couple of setups, including

    - ledger accounts in the inventory posting matrix (inventory / setup / posting / posting -sales tab: deferred revenue on delivery/deferred revenue offset on delivery

    - item model group: make sure the parameter post to deferred revenue account on sales delivery is checked.

    Would be great if you could make those setups and let us know if it fixed your issue.

    Many thanks and best regards,
