Is deferred revenue also counted under assets on a balance sheet?

Recommended Posts

It occurred to me that while I understand the definition of deferred revenue. That is, "payments received in advance for services which have not yet been performed or goods which have not yet been delivered". And that I understand it's recorded as a liability on balance sheets. I'm not clear how I need to consider this when looking at the assets of a company.

So if for example, Made-up Inc has:

  • Cash and cash equivalents: £200
  • Deferred revenue: £100

Does this company have

  1. £200, of which half is deferred revenue,
  2. or £200, plus £100 in deferred revenue, making a total of £300?

Thanks.

    • yes, keep away from ftse and gbpusd until brexit is sorted, yesterday was deal done, then last night no deal, then this morning deal done at 2am news released about half an hour ago, that's why it's all over the place. look at these dax and ftse HA M5 charts.  
    • Dax moving up to test yesterday's highs, Dow powers up to the pivot, if Dow can break the pivot Dax should see R1 H1 charts;
    • Not got anything out of the market today either. Gonna look for new strategies, different assets, different timeframes, ... Any suggestions welcome. Also probably back to Demo for a while.
