2.2.3 – Payments Received in Advanced - When selling goods or services, it is common to receive payments in advance from customers. - You've seen that this increases our assets, namely cash and liabilities, that is the obligation to provide services. - The specific account we use to record the liability is called unearned revenue or deferred revenue. - This can potentially be confusing, because the word revenue in the name seems to indicate that it's a revenue account. It isn't. - Once liability is recorded, it will be reduced over time as the revenue is earned by delivering the product or service. - Once again, the name of this liability account is unknown revenue or deferred revenue. - Suppose Cardullo's sells a customer a gift card for $100. This gift card transaction is an example of deferred revenue. Cardullo's has received $100 from the customer, but Cardullo's has not yet earned the revenue for the sale because the store still has the obligation to provide $100 worth of goods in the future when the customer returns and redeems the gift card. - Cardullo's will need to record the receipt of $100 for the sale of a gift card. - To record this journal entry, o Cardullo's will first make a debit to cash for $100.Cash is an asset, and assets increase with a debit. So this debit reflects the fact that Cardullo's now has $100 more in cash. o For the second half of the journal entry, Cardullo's will record a credit to deferred revenue for $100.
