What is a Rights-Holder Balance?

In Reprtoir, Rights-Holder Balances automatically shows the total of the amounts indicated in the Contract Balances list for each Contract, which can be debit or credit, as well as other important accounting status information.

Understanding Rights-Holder Balances

Definition of balance consolidation: Consolidation means that you are freezing the current overall balance of a right holder and that no new debits and credits will be able to influence that balance.
Let’s go over what these columns are and what they mean:
Overall Balance
The Overall balance is the sum of all the right holder's debits and credits. In other words, it is the sum of all Incomes and Expenses associated with a right holder for a given accounting period.
Opening Balance
The opening balance corresponds to any outstanding debits or credits present at the beginning of an accounting period.
Closing Balance
The closing balance represents a snapshot of what the balance would look like if you were to consolidate and close it.
Consolidation Date
The consolidation date column shows you the last consolidation date.
Next Consolidation
The consolidation date column shows you the pre-defined consolidation date you have set for a right holder.
Expenses
The Expenses column sums up all of the right holder’s expenses.
Incomes Amounts
The incomes amount column sums up all of the right holder’s incomes.
