SaaS Revenue Recognition with Sage Intacct

Software as a service (SaaS) companies are shifting their customer relationships from traditional perpetual licenses and on-premises software to longer-term, subscription-based models.

The benefits are proven to attract more customers, create more revenue predictability, and achieve a higher customer lifetime value.

Your SaaS company can free more time to nurture its long-term customer relationships by minimizing inefficient processes.

That starts with your accounting software.

Small Software, Big Problems

Many small and midsized SaaS companies use entry-level solutions for accounting and financial management but quickly realize their limitations—especially in revenue management.

Small business accounting applications are great for order-centric companies, but they can’t support the various billing models and recurring revenue SaaS companies use.

For example, QuickBooks can’t track revenue recognition, forcing users to manually track it in a spreadsheet or different application. Spreadsheets are dangerous places to manipulate data—they lead to expensive mistakes and outdated information.

Revenue recognition is a critical accounting principle, and if it’s not done correctly, you’re left with inaccurate financial statements that can mislead investors and creditors.

Additionally, the more revenue your SaaS company generates, the higher the probability of financial audits. That means your financials must comply with ASC 606 and IFRS 15.
