Running Revenue Recognition
Running Revenue Recognition Receivables, Vision Operations (USA) (N) Control > Accounting > Revenue Recognition The Revenue Recognition program will automatically run as a part of the General Ledger transfer process. You can also run the
Revenue Recognition program manually at any time. The program generates the revenue distribution records for invoices and credit memos that use invoicing and accounting rules. Accounting rules determine the number of periods and percentage of total revenue to record in each accounting period. Invoicing rules determine when to recognize the receivable for invoices that span more than one accounting period. Distributions are created in the Receivables subledger and will pass to General Ledger during the appropriate accounting period. This is an essential process in accrual-based accounting.
