20. UNBILLED AND DEFERRED REVENUE Unbilled and deferred Group revenue relates to the contracting and execution of construction projects and to services. The recognition of revenue, timing of billings and cash collections result in unbilled receivables, accounts receivable and deferred revenue. In the contracting business amounts are billed as work progress in accordance with contractual terms, either at periodic intervals or upon achievement of contractual milestones. In the event that billing occurs subsequent to revenue recognition, unbilled revenue is recognized (as an asset). In the event that payments are received from customers based on deposits or invoices in advance of revenue recognition, deferred revenue is recognized (as a liability). In the services business amounts are billed based on contractually agreed schedules and/or milestones. As revenue is recognized/allocated to a large extent on the basis of sailing days, unbilled revenue or deferred revenue is recognized for the difference between revenues recognized and invoices issued.
