General Ledger  Mapping

Integrate quickly with existing financial systems and reduce administrative burdens – no separate revenue module required.

Challenge

Companies new to recurring revenue can face error-prone manual closing processes or the disruption of adapting or replacing deeply embedded corporate systems.

Our Solution

BillingPlatform’s unique architecture will match the existing financial structure, accounting periods and chart of accounts, enabling you to track forward-looking metrics: customer lifetime value, recurring profit margins, renewal rates, churn, and more.

 

Revenue Recognition

With products and services becoming more complex, use a rules-based approach to designate when revenue should be declared while gaining robust reporting for audit purposes.

Challenge

New accounting standards are increasing scrutiny on when recurring revenue is recognized; inflexible systems cause tedious reconciliations, closing delays or even require revenue restatements that can damage investor confidence.

Our Solution

Accurate revenue recognition helps with better cash flow forecasts; BillingPlatform’s ability to handle all pricing scenarios, discounts, and milestones is matched with superior customer contract management.

Taxation

Manual tax application and re-formulations affect profitability. Meet tax obligations with proper revenue characterization and sourcing rules, reducing unpaid tax bills, penalties and interest.

Challenge

Billing departments can struggle as the tax environment is very dynamic at the global, regional and local levels. Rules are constantly evolving and scrutiny is increasing for cross-border transactions with recurring revenue.

Our Solution

BillingPlatform has built-in taxation capabilities that excel in managing accurate pricing, calculating US sales tax/VAT/GST, and reducing the reporting burden. BillingPlatform is also flexible enough to change as the business model or taxing authority does.

Regulatory Compliance

Strengthen stakeholder confidence and avoid reporting delays by ensuring adherence to regulations from both domestic and international accounting standards.

Challenge

Many billing solutions fail when it comes to handling decentralized electronic billing with laws and rules that can vary by country, causing discrepancies between the compliance officer’s requirements and the system’s ability to execute.

Our Solution

With BillingPlatform, account hierarchies, workflow and business rules are aligned with compliance requirements from the start of the billing cycle through revenue recognition, payment and reporting in accordance with ASC606/IFRS15 and global standards.

 

Worldwide Reach

When adding new markets, enhance your customer satisfaction by adjusting to regional and cross-border requirements for billing and taxation, including new regulatory oversight.

Challenge

While English is the most common business language,  companies may suffer customer backlash, competitive disadvantage and incur legal disputes if their financial systems can’t adapt to cultural preferences.

Our Solution

BillingPlatform provides a better global customer experience by offering different currencies, languages, timezone conversions and date formats in customer profiles, invoices and communication templates. Get different delivery options for electronic invoicing and address common tax or trade requirements.
