Pro-Rated Charges

Pro-Rated Billing Charges

Pro-Rated amounts are charged when you add a new client to your Wholesale Discount on a different date to your normal billing date.

For example, if your billing date is the 8th of every month and you add a new file after this date you will then be charged a pro-rated amount on the 8th of the next month.

When you are billed you are billed for the month forward and thus why you get charged the pro-rated amount plus the month forward amount.

The Pro-Rated charges will vary depending on the subscription you sign up to.

The way Pro-Rated amounts are calculated is as follows:

£ Amount of your subscription divided by how many days in that particular month times how many days this file has been active before your next bill date.

For Example:

If you add on a Plus subscription at £19.50 a month on the 21st of the December (31 days in the month) you will be charged:
£19.50 divided by 31 days = 63 pence

63 pence times 18 (days it has been active) = £11.35 (Pro-Rated)

£11.35 + £19.50 = £30.85 – First amount you will be charged and then moving forward you will only be charged the £19.50
