Revenue Recognition for Advance Payments Name: Institution: Revenue Recognition for Advance Payments Hamilton Company should record the revenue six months after the receipt of the $630,000 from the sale tickets for the upcoming season of six Broadway musicals. According to the principle of revenue recognition, a company is required to record its revenue only when it has been earned CITATION Cam16 l 1033 (Merritt, 2016). Accrual method accounting distinguishes revenue recognition from cash flow CITATION Cam16 l 1033 (Merritt, 2016). The Company, in this case, will earn its revenue after it has fulfilled its obligation of delivering the performance, and can therefore lay claim to the advanced payment it has received from the sale of the performance tickets. It will still need to record the receipt of cash as a liability known as deferred revenue or unearned revenue. Each month, of the over the six months of providing the contracted service, the company will record the revenue and reduce the amount of liability CITATION Cam16 l 1033 (Merritt, 2016). By the sixth month, when all the shows have been aired, the liability will have reduced to zero.
