    Hi Twizzy


    Thank you for your post. Yes the deposit is reported in the month it is received. Our help article Customer prepayments has information and instructions on how to handle a customer prepayment within AccountRight, however if you don't want it to be reported when it is received I would recommend speaking to your accountant or financial advisor for an alternative or the ATO as there is specific rules for reporting deposits. 


    Please do let us know if you have any further questions.
