Warranty Reserve

Has anyone solved for crediting warranty reserve upon shipment of goods? In our old ERP system we could add extra/miscellaneous cost to the job and instead of crediting the applied account we would credit the reserve account on the balance sheet.

What is the best way to Accomplish this in Epicor?

Welcome Bob!

Do you have the Deferred Revenue module? Are you using one of the Field Service modules?

In the Deferred Revenue module, there is a check box to indicate you wish to recognize revenue later. Then you will set up an amortization table within the invoice to cover the warranty period. Once you start recognizing revenue, I seem to recall that it is impossible to change the schedule. This may or may not have changed.

The Epicor Field Service module does the same thing when selling a warranty but it also did serial number tracking and other extra features.
