Long-term and short-term reclassification


Long-term and short-term reclassification

In Zuora Revenue, when revenue is recognized for the Contract Liability account, there is a provision to reclassify the revenue to both the long-term and short-term accounts. This provisioning process is referred to as long-term and short-term reclassification (LT/ST Reclass) in Zuora Revenue. The main purpose to perform LT/ST reclassification is to reclassify the revenue to be recognized in both long term and short term to understand the revenue position of your organization.

Configuration overview

The LT/ST reclassification functionality in Zuora Revenue is driven by profiles and primarily works based on the specified profile values. Navigate to Setups > Application > Profiles and use the following profiles to configure the LT/ST reclassification functionality:

    Use this profile to specify the number of months that are to be considered for the LT/ST reclassification process. For example, if this profile is set to 12, 12 months after the current open period will be considered as long-term periods. If the current open period is January 2019, the long-term periods will start from February 2020 until the revenue end date.

    Use this profile to specify whether the revenue contract in CA position should participate in the LT/ST reclassification process. If this profile is set to Yes, LT/ST schedules can be booked for the revenue contract in CA position. Otherwise, the revenue contract in CA position will not participate in the LT/ST reclassification process.

In addition to profile configuration, for the LT/ST reclassification functionality to work, the following configurations are required in the system:

  • Setups > Application > Accounting Setup > Account Type
    The long-term CL and long-term CA accounting types are defined in the system.

  • Setups > Application > Revenue Books
    LT/ST reclassification is enabled for the revenue book.

  • Setups > Security > Roles > Role Privileges
    The role of the user who will start the RevPro3.0 LT/ST Reclass process has full access to the LT/ST Reclass sub-menu.
