Automate deferred revenue recognition

ScaleXP automatically recognises multi-month invoices and spreads revenue over the relevant time period. 

It does this using natural language processing algorithms to extract relevant data from the text in your invoices, such as ‘annual’, ‘year’, ‘month’, ‘quarter’ and specific dates. 

Integrating seamlessly with Quickbooks, Xero, Sage and more, you’ll save hours of tedious, manual calculations each month.

Be prepared for growth

As your company grows, the complexity of billing arrangements can quickly escalate; with different terms by client or contract, different billing periods for hardware, software or specific services.

From this point, critical business metrics can be derived in a single click MRR (monthly recurring revenue), ARR (annual recurring revenue), CAC (cost of customer acquisition), as well as unit economics.

Deferred revenue FAQs

Deferred revenue or deferred income, which can also be referred to as unearned revenue, is revenue which has been invoiced but not yet ‘earned’. It is an advanced payment for services to be delivered in the future.

Deferred revenue typically occurs when a company issues an invoice, for services which will be delivered over several months, quarters or years. As a simple example, if you buy a gift voucher and pay today, the company will recognise deferred revenue until that voucher is redeemed. 

Accrued revenue is revenue which has been earned but not yet invoiced. It occurs when invoices are sent at the end of the quarter for services which they have already delivered.

For many small businesses and start-ups, revenue reporting rules may seem daunting. Fortunately, technological advances have streamlined revenue reporting by automating manual processes and enhancing financial visibility, allowing you to get the best view of when revenue should be recognised and when the cash will arrive.
