CCV calculation

Zuora

CCV calculation

Charge contractual value (CCV) is the cumulative sum of all invoiced or to-be-invoiced charges against a rate plan charge, inclusive of any proration. CCV is generated when a subscription is created, and can be updated during the subscription lifecycle.

Indicators for CCV calculation

The CCV calculation is dependent on the following indicators:

  • Charge-level fields, including:
    • Charge price
    • Charge quantity
    • Charge effective date, including effective start date and effective end date
    See RatePlanCharge for more information. 
    Note: Zuora Revenue requires that the tax is excluded from CCV because the tax amount does not impact the revenue. Hence, even if the Tax Mode setting is set to Tax Inclusive for product rate plan charges in Zuora Billing, the tax amount is excluded from the charge price to derive the correct CCV in Zuora Revenue. If the tax rate gets changed in Zuora Billing, Zuora Revenue will calculate the CCV based on the new tax rate. The tax rate date is the subscription term start date.
  • Tenant-level or account-level settings in Zuora Billing, including:

CCV calculation examples

Your customer subscribed to 10 units of your product for 12 months, from 2020-01-01 to 2020-12-31, with a monthly billing period and a list price of $5.00 per unit. The BCD is the 1st day of each month.

The CCV is generated when this subscription is created:

Charge  Segment Version CCV Start Date End Date
C-0000001 1 1 10 * 12 * 5= 600.00 2020-01-01 2020-12-31

On 2020-03-31, you update the product and increase the quantity from 10 to 13. A new rate plan charge segment is created. CCV is recalculated accordingly:

Charge  Segment Version CCV Start Date End Date
C-0000001 1 1 10 * 3 * 5 = 150.00 2020-01-01 2020-03-31
C-0000001 2 2 13 * 9 * 5 = 585.00 2020-04-01 2020-12-31
