pin_ledger_report: Cumulative Vs Incremental (Doc ID 561219.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 26, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management - Version: 7.2.1.0.0 and later   [Release: 7.2.1 and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

1. Out-of-Box BRM reports the unearned revenue in cumulative way instead of incremental.   But
earned revenue is reported in incremental way.   Can the unearned revenue be reported incrementally like the report of earned type?

2. Why does BRM report the two types of revenue (earned and unearned) in two different ways?   Is it
common business practice?

3. Is the difference in handling the two types of revenue according to the guideline of Oracle
Financials accounting package?

4. Is it OK to take the present month's unearned revenue and subtract from the last month's
unearned revenue to report the incremental unearned revenue to Oracle Financials?
