The primary revenue recognition processes in Dynamics 365:
- Fixed Price (Completed Percentage) Revenue Recognition: This method allows you to recognize revenue based on the percentage of completion for fixed-price projects. You can set up rules to calculate revenue recognition based on predefined milestones, project tasks, or labour hours. The revenue recognition is automatically updated as the project progresses.
- Time and Material (T&M) Revenue Recognition: For time and material projects, revenue recognition in Dynamics 365 is usually based on the actual time and expenses incurred. The system tracks billable hours and costs associated with the project, and revenue is recognized accordingly.
- Milestone-Based Revenue Recognition: Dynamics 365 allows you to define milestones within a project and link them to revenue recognition. Once a milestone is achieved or a specific deliverable is completed, revenue recognition can be triggered automatically.
- Cost Recovery Revenue Recognition: This method is applicable when costs need to be recovered before recognising revenue. Dynamics 365 can track project costs, and revenue recognition can be delayed until the costs are fully recovered.
- Revenue Recognition Rules: Dynamics 365 provides the flexibility to define revenue recognition rules based on specific criteria. You can set up rules to recognise revenue based on custom formulas, percentage thresholds, project stages, or other parameters.
It’s important to note that revenue recognition in Dynamics 365 can be highly customisable to meet the specific needs of your organisation. The system offers various tools and options to configure revenue recognition methods and rules based on your project accounting requirements and applicable accounting standards.
