What is NetSuite Revenue Recognition?
NetSuite’s revenue recognition capabilities automate revenue scheduling, allocation and reporting. Create specific recognition rules for each product or service you offer, then easily link them to individual line items in customer contracts. Automatically recognize revenue based on predefined schedules or milestones in compliance with ASC 606, IFRS 15 and other standards.
Accounting for recurring revenue can be complex and time consuming. Now you can automate this process and manage revenue accurately and in accordance with the latest revenue recognition standards.
Compliance Made Easy
The combination of automated revenue recognition and real-time financial reporting gives companies an easy path to compliance, even with the most complex contracts.
Revenue allocation decisions are frequently called into question by auditors — especially when there are inconsistencies between contracts. Avoid audit delays and extra fees by standardizing the allocations process.
We decided to switch to NetSuite because we wanted a system to support where the business was going.

NetSuite Revenue Recognition Features
Define Standalone Selling Prices using either a constant or dynamic formula and automatically allocate revenue across all contract elements by applying sophisticated, user-defined rules. Modify allocations prospectively or retrospectively to incorporate contract additions, changes or cancelations.
Rules & Schedules
Record revenue accurately by building performance obligations, project milestones and other revenue triggers into the revenue plan for each contract. NetSuite supports multiple revenue recognition approaches, including subscription, fulfillment (quantity or date), project completion (milestone or percentage) and time- and materials-based pricing models.
Revenue Plan Management
Modify revenue plans individually or in bulk — changes update totals automatically, saving time and avoiding manual errors. Updates can be applied to just the remaining periods within a plan, or the entire plan can be modified, with adjustments, such as catch ups or claw backs, included in the period changes are made.
