The accrued amount is the sales price of the subscription transaction divided by the number of periods for which the subscription has accrued.

You create a subscription transaction by using a quarterly invoicing period code and a monthly accrual period code. The sales price for the transaction is EUR 300. Therefore, when you invoice the subscription transaction, three amounts of EUR 100 each are created.

In the Subscription parameters form, if you select the Calculate accrued revenue per day check box, and you select First in the Rounding-off period field, the amount for the first month is rounded up, so that the total amount for the invoicing period equals the sales price. The following table illustrates the accrued amounts for January, February, and March if the invoicing period is the first quarter of a calendar year.
