Recurring Revenue Breakdown

This Help File Page was last Modified on 03/26/2017

Departmental Accounting is an integral function of the General Ledger module.

If you have implemented Departmental Accounting, each Recurring Revenue item defined in the Subscriber's Auto Bill Form is assigned a Department number

However, you do not yet have to actually be using the General Ledger module, as long as you have it registered and have defined your Departments, to have the benefit of this Recurring Revenue Breakdown report as long as you assign a Department Number to each Sale-Purchase Item and Auto Bill record.

If you are not using the General Ledger and/or have not defined Departments, this "By Department" option will not be offered.

Examining your Company's Recurring Revenues based on Departments and/or Billing Frequency will allow you to better manage each of these profit areas more effectively.

This Recurring Revenue Breakdown report provides the ideal tool to analyze this part of your business.
