Revenue Recognition Migration: Deferred revenue/Unbilled receivable acct

Dear experts,

We migrated service contracts from logistics legacy system and corresponding deferred revenue/unbilled receivable accounts from financial legacy to SAP. When migrating balance sheet, we used "technical" deferred and unbilled accounts (meaning accounts different from RR standard accounts). The issue is that we will never be able to clear those accounts. What do you usually do when migrating deferred & unbilled used in RR. Do you usually migrate the balance on what will be the final revenue recognition accounts ?

Thanks a lot for your help,

François

    We are doing an M&A consolidation and changing revenue recognition methods as well. In the process we are going from an SAP to an SAP system, however this is in the same system and the new organization structure and new methods requires us to move revenue recognition, unbilled AR, deferred revenues, etc., to the new system. We are trying to do this without having to rebuild a lot of history.

    Is there a way to do this by just converting open balances? If so, what did you do with the specific order linked line items that were posted in the "legacy" SAP organization structure? Is there a way to do this with direct FI document postings to bring across details or do you actually have to create "dummy" documents to post balances?

    More questions but that is plenty for now.
