Contract Balances
The following table presents balances of contract assets, unbilled receivables, contract costs, and contract liabilities (in thousands):
December 31, 2020 December 31, 2019
Contract assets $ 4,526  $ 1,027 
Unbilled receivables $ 10,942  $ 10,099 
Contract costs $ 90  $ — 
Contract liabilities: deferred revenue $ 4,791  $ 2,044 

We recognize accounts receivable when we have an unconditional right to recognize revenue and have issued an invoice to the customer. Our payment terms are generally between 30 and 90 days. We recognize unbilled receivables when we have an unconditional right to recognize revenue and have not issued an invoice to our customer. Unbilled receivables, current are transferred to accounts receivable on issuance of an invoice. Unbilled receivables, non-current are transferred to accounts receivable on issuance of an invoice; payment is expected from the customer thereon. Unbilled receivables are classified separately on the consolidated balance sheets as assets. We maintain a valuation allowance on accounts receivables and unbilled receivables.
Contract assets represent our right to recognize revenue for custom products with no alternate use and under binding non-cancellable purchase orders and are largely related to our procurement of product. We recognize contract assets when we have a conditional right to recognize revenue. The delivery pattern of certain of products occurs in advance of the invoicing process, which generates contract assets. In addition, we recognize a contract asset related to milestones not eligible for royalty accounting when we assess it is probable of being achieved and there will be no significant reversal of cumulative revenues. Contract assets are classified separately on the consolidated balance sheets as an asset and transferred to accounts receivable when our rights to payment become unconditional. We maintain a valuation allowance on contract assets.
Contract liabilities, or deferred revenue, represent our obligation to transfer a product or service to the customer, and for which we have received consideration from the customer. We recognize a contract liability when we receive advance customer payments under development agreements for research and development services, upfront license payments, and from upfront customer payments received under product supply agreements. Contract liabilities are classified as a liability on the consolidated balance sheet.
Contract costs relate to incremental costs of obtaining a contract with a customer. Contract costs are amortized along with the associated revenue over the term of the contract.
During the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, we had no asset impairment charges related to contract assets.
We recognized the following revenues (in thousands):
