What is Net Revenue? πŸ€”

Net Revenue is money in the bank, so to speak. It shows you how much money you were paid, broken out by day.

How is it calculated? πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

Our formula is simple:
​Gross Volume (Recurring and Non-recurring) - Refunds = Net Revenue

How are refunds handled?

We record all charges and adjustments, including refunds, on the day they are posted. This means if a refund is issued today for a charge from last month, it affects today's net revenue, not the previous month's. This approach keeps each month's total stable and unchanged after the month ends, ensuring a consistent overview.

What about fees?

Baremetrics does not remove fees from Net Revenue. Instead, fees can be viewed separately in the fees metric.

How is Net Revenue different from MRR? πŸ“’

  1. Non-monthly plans are not normalized. So if you have a $1,200/year signup, that revenue will show up in Net Revenue as "$1,200".

  2. Non-recurring charges are included.

Looking for Traditional Accounting Revenue?

If you need traditional 'Accounting Revenue' figures as seen in conventional Profit and Loss (P&L) statements, Baremetrics offers a solution with Forecast+. This tool integrates with Xero and Quickbooks and allows you to view your financials in a format familiar to those used in traditional accounting, providing a comprehensive and compliant financial overview for your business.

Why is my Net Revenue different from Stripe? πŸ’΅

Stripe doesn't account for refunds. Also, we report in UTC, whereas your Stripe dashboard may be localized to your time zone. This means we may report revenue on a different day than Stripe.
