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 date of the consolidated balance sheets. These amounts are stated on the consolidated balance sheets as unbilled receivables of $2,490,905 and $2,279,362 as of January 31, 2020 and October 31, 2019, respectively.
Our deferred revenue of $1,178,537 and $973,735 as of January 31, 2020 and October 31, 2019, respectively, consists of billings in excess of costs and estimated earnings and revenues received as part of our subscription package offering, warranty or Through Life Support (“TLS”) obligations upon completing a sale.
Revenue received as part of sales of products via our Products Segment includes a provision for subscription package offering, warranty or TLS. Subscription package offering is essentially a rental agreement for a fixed period of twelve months under which we supply full equipment suite including hardware, software and technical support during the subscription period. TLS offers the customer extended post-sales technical support along with software and hardware assurances. These post-sales obligations (subscription package offering, warranty and TLS) are treated as deferred revenue and are amortized over the period when the contractual obligations subsist, which for subscription package offering and warranty is 12 months and TLS varies between 36 and 60 months depending on the package purchased by the customer. These amounts are stated on the consolidated balance sheets as a component of deferred revenue of $501,795 and $497,819 as of January 31, 2020 and October 31, 2019, respectively.
