How do funds received and revenue differ in ROLLER?
In ROLLER, revenue is recognized when it's earned (ie the booking takes place), following accrual accounting, regardless of when payment is received. In contrast, funds received are recorded when actual money is physically received, in line with cash accounting principles. Both metrics are important for a comprehensive understanding of your business performance.
