Streamline and automate revenue recognition and deferral.

The way you bill customers may vary from the way you recognize revenue. For example, you may bill a customer 50% upfront and 50% upon project completion, but recognize the revenue at regular intervals as you deliver the service. The Intacct Project Accounting system automates the recognition and deferral of project-based revenue—saving your finance team time and improving accuracy.

  • Decouple billing from revenue recognition so you can efficiently and accurately manage complex billing and revenue management schedules.
  • Automate revenue recognition accounting for multi-element arrangements, including support for Vendor Specific Objective Evidence (VSOE), Third Party Evidence (TPE), and Estimated Selling Price (ESP).
  • Easily respond to subsequent modifications with the ability to pause, resume, modify, and cancel revenue recognition schedules that are already in progress.
