Course Description

Recurring revenue is the portion of a company's revenue that is expected to continue in the future. Unlike one-off sales, these revenues are predictable, stable and can be counted on to occur at regular intervals going forward with a relatively high degree of certainty.

From software as a service (SaaS) to entertainment on demand, recurring revenue models are changing the nature of business.

The SaaS business lives and dies by consistent subscription revenue. To measure that growth or decline, you’re ultimately focused on the almighty Recurring Revenue metric.

The benefits for companies that adopt this approach include improved cash flow and higher valuations. But implementing a recurring revenue strategy isn't without its challenges, especially when it comes to accounting.

In speaking with 50 SaaS companies, we found that calculating this somewhat simple metric accurately was an absolute disaster. 1 in 5 SaaS companies were removing some sort of expense from the equation; 2 in 5 were including trialing or free users in some manner; and a majority were incorrectly breaking down their annual or quarterly payments.

Whether you're transforming your entire company or simply adding another revenue stream, it's important to understand how offering subscription impacts financial processes.

Major topics highlighted in this online Accounting CPE webinar:

  • How to effectively and accurately manage recurring revenue
  • GAAP- compliant revenue recognition management and standard financial reporting.
  • What are the needs of companies that are currently offering subscription-based products or looking to expand their current business with new subscription-based revenue streams?

Presenter knowledgeable about subject matter but not an effective speaker. Too many “you knows” “um” and stilted speech at times. The woman who narrated the demo on the other hand was a polished speaker
