    Deferred revenue, also known as unearned revenue, refers to advance payments a company receives for products or services that are to be delivered or performed in the future. The company that receives the prepayment records the amount as deferred revenue, a liability, on its balance sheet. For example, revenue used for advertisement is deferred revenue expenditure because it will keep showing its benefits over the period of two to three years.
