What is the service period of invoices with recurring items?

JustOn automatically determines the service period of an invoice based on various conditions:

Generally, the earliest service period start date of all included invoice line items defines the service period start of the invoice. Consequently, the latest service period end date of all included invoice line items defines the service period end of the invoice.

If set, the subscription end date forces the service period end of the invoice.

With respect to the invoice line items, the start date and end date set as the invoice run period usually represent the service period for recurring items. If, however, JustOn determines a billing factor (as given by a billing period and a billing unit), the service period start of the invoice line item is set using the subscription item's Next Service Period Start field. The service period end is then calculated as follows: Next Service Period Start + Billing Period - 1 day.

If Next Service Period Start is not set, JustOn uses the invoice run start date instead.

Other settings that force an item's service period end include:

  • the subscription item's activation end date, and
  • the end date of the last price tier defined for the subscription item.

Using the custom placeholders ServicePeriodStart and ServicePeriodEnd, you can display the items' service period in the invoice PDF. For details, see Adjusting Invoice Line Item Table.
