NOTE 9 – CONTRACTS IN PROGRESS
Costs and estimated earnings in excess of billings on uncompleted contracts represent accumulated project expenses and fees which have not been invoiced to customers as of the balance sheet date. These amounts are stated on the consolidated balance sheets as Unbilled Receivables of $1,742,334 and $602,115 as of July 31, 2023, and October 31, 2022, respectively.
Deferred Revenue of $543,991 and $790,458 as of July 31, 2023, and October 31, 2022, respectively, consist of billings in excess of costs and revenues received as part of our warranty obligations upon completing a sale, as elaborated further in the last paragraph of this Note.
Sales of equipment include a separate performance obligation for warranty or Through Life Support (“TLS”) which may be optionally purchased by the customer. This is treated as deferred revenue which is amortized over the relevant obligation period (12 months is our standard warranty or 36 or 60-months from the date of delivery for our TLS product). These amounts are stated on the consolidated balance sheets as a component of Deferred Revenue and were $236,026 and $229,238 as of July 31, 2023, and October 31, 2022, respectively.
