Sales Revenue:

Sales of a company can be made through cash or on account, but whatever the mode of payment is, as long as the service and the goods have already been delivered, the transaction will be considered as sales and will be reported accordingly in the income statement. Trade sales are the company's main source of revenue, that is why they must ensure that those sales made on account will be collected within the period they've provided.
