MRR vs Actual Revenue and Payouts
Updated over a week ago

Monthly Recurring Revenue (MRR) is a metric used by many subscription-based businesses to forecast future growth as well as track momentum. Please be aware, it is a financial metric of business health, but it is not part of GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles), IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards), or reported to a government entity.

MRR should not be used as a monthly reconciliation number for total monthly revenue or to estimate upcoming payouts for a variety of reasons:

  • MRR is a gross number. Net amounts, including deductions for various types of fees are only reported on the invoices reporting tab in the Uscreen dashboard.

  • MRR breaks all transaction amounts into a monthly rate. If you have varying terms besides monthly, MRR can include amounts based on annual/12, quarterly/12, semi-annual/12.

  • Because of this, Payout amounts will vary up and down from MRR, because the transaction itself is taking place on a specific date, which is then paid out all at once according to applicable payout terms

For more detailed information on MRR, please refer to the following article.
