Tax Rate


  1. When an invoice is created, it has a due date. The due date is referred to as the term. The number after the word term means how many days the invoice is due from today. Due on receipt means the payment is due when the invoice is created.

  2. All line items on a subscription can be modified regardless of the plan selected. The plan is just the template and can be edited for the subscription.

  3. Marking an item as One Time means it only shows up on the next invoice and is removed from future invoices.

  4. Marking an item as Taxable means that the tax rate is applied to the line item.

  5. If you click More on a line item, you can customize the start and end date of each line item. This is completely separate from the subscription as a whole.

  6. Subscriptions are automatically calculated in terms of recurring revenue. All of this information is placed in the reports section. The system breaks down all subscription revenue to its recurring monthly component, keeping track of all subscription revenue.
