Hi, The deferral method determines whether and how account entries will be transferred to the new financial year. There are four possible deferral methods: None, Balance, Detail, Unreconciled.

  1. None -- Nothing will be transferred (typically P&L accounts)
  2. Balance -- Account balance will be transferred (typically Balance Sheet accounts)
  3. Detail -- All entries are transferred, also reconciled entries
  4. Unreconciled -- Only entries that are not reconciled on the first day of the new financial year will be transferred (typically receivable and payable).

Thanks Dhinesh

For the accounting professionals, the Deferral method refers to the logic used to recognize Revenues or Expenses in future periods. What your are mentionning is referring to "Carry forward"
