Unearned Income/Revenue

All incomes or revenues which are received in advance but not earned during the year are treated as unearned revenue. There may be times when a certain income is received in the current year but the whole amount of it does not belong to the current year.

Accounting Treatment

Unearned incomes/revenues are not the actual income for that particular year and thus deducted from that particular revenue account in the Profit and Loss Account.
Unearned incomes/revenues are treated as liability for the business and thus appear under the Current Liabilities in the Balance Sheet.

Note: If unearned income/revenue appears inside the Trial balance then it will ONLY appear under the Liabilities in the Balance Sheet.
