Setting the Accounting Day for reports

Table of contents
No headers

The Accounting Day sets the Accounting Period and Accounting Year that is stored in the summary table that is used for reporting. For example, if the accounting day is set at 15, each accounting period starts on the 15th day.

If an accounting day is less than or equal to the collection date, data is processed within that same period. If an accounting day is greater than the collection date, data is processed for the previous period. As a result, customers with different accounting days could have different accounting periods placed in the records for the same selection date.

For example, consider the scenario when processing usage data from December 10:

Customer

Accounting Day

Budget

Usage

Cust A

1

100

150

Cust B

15

200

250

CUST A ’s budgets and usage would be placed into period 12 because accounting day 1 (the first of the month) has passed. CUST B ’s usage would be placed into period 11 because the accounting day of the 15th is the start of period 12 and that date has not yet been reached.
