In order to refine your Revenue Recognition on Services, you would like to find in the Sales Subledger, in tab revenue Recognition - Deferrals, the possibilities to add an Account Determination Group for Services, similar to what can be found in the Revenues tab.
Reproducing the Issue
Go to the Business Configuration Work Centre
Go to the First Implementation View
Search for Activity Charts of Accounts, Financial Reporting Structures, Account Determination
Select and open the activity
Navigate to the Account Determination section
Select the Sales Subledger
Select the relevant Account Determination Profile XYZ
Navigate to subtab Revenues
You can see there is an additional menu that allows you to further determine your accounts for Material, Services and Entitlements.
Select 2 - Services from the scroll-down menu, you can see there is a column for Account Determination Group for Services
Now navigate to subtab Revenue Recognition - Deferrals
There is no mention of Services for Deferrals and you expect to have the possibilities to narrow down your Account Determination for them as well.
This is the expected system behaviour, based on the current logic regarding Account Determination and its configuration, there is no need to refine Revenue Recognition - Deferrals based on Account Determination Group for Services.
All Revenues are bundled on the same Deferred Revenue G/L account. If you need to know where this revenue is coming from (i.e. its origin), then you have the possibility to filter on the G/L Account (Origin) in different reports, such as Project - Line Items or Sales Documents - Line Items.
This is why there is no possibility to add an Account Determination Group for Services in tab Revenue Recognition - Deferrals as it would be a redundant feature that could cause further inconsistencies on your Account Determination should you maintain different G/L Accounts.
Whether the G/L account is the same as the G/L account (Origin) depends on the Accrual Method assigned or lack thereof i.e. if there is no Accrual Method maintained, then G/L account = G/L account (Origin).
