Calculating net ARR (Annual Recurring Revenue) is an essential task for any business that relies on recurring revenue streams. It helps businesses understand their revenue growth and profitability over time. In this article, we'll discuss what net ARR is, when it's valuable to calculate it, and how to calculate it in TallyPrime.

What Is Net ARR?

Net ARR is the total annual recurring revenue a company generates from its customers after accounting for any discounts, refunds, or cancellations. It's a critical metric for subscription-based businesses, as it helps them understand their revenue growth and predict future revenue streams. Net ARR is calculated by multiplying the total number of active customers by the average revenue per customer and then subtracting any discounts, refunds, or cancellations.

For example, if a company has 100 active customers, and each customer pays $100 per month, the company's gross ARR would be $1,200,000 ($100 x 100 x 12). However, if the company offers a 10% discount to its customers, its net ARR would be $1,080,000 ($1,200,000 - $120,000).

When Is It Valuable To Calculate Net ARR?

Calculating net ARR is valuable for any business that relies on recurring revenue streams, such as subscription-based businesses, SaaS companies, and membership-based organizations. It helps businesses understand their revenue growth and predict future revenue streams, which is essential for making informed business decisions.

Net ARR is also valuable for investors and stakeholders who want to understand a company's revenue growth and profitability over time. By calculating net ARR, investors can evaluate a company's financial health and make informed investment decisions.
