How to Setup Deferral Revenue and Expenses in Business Central?

Visit Website View Our Posts

To identify the revenue or an expense in a period other than the period in which the transaction was posted, you can use functionality to automatically defer revenues and expenses over a specified schedule. Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central has an inbuilt capability to track deferral revenue and expenses. This helps in reducing the requirement to assess deferrals by hand and automatically spreading the expenses/revenues across multiple periods. This is mainly suitable if you have an annual fee for something that you don’t want to identify at the time you pay for the whole year. Dynamics 365 Business Central can spread the expense out over a specified time period by using the correct Deferral Code.
