Royalty software update 4.6.28 added a new report: Royalty rules usage. This report shows royalty rules; sorted by contract or royalty rule name, and the associated applied to terms and royalty rates.
This addition to our royalty software allows the user to quickly review their royalty rules for errors or omissions. Three examples of royalty rule errors are:
- Ebook royalty rule linked to criteria: format: Hardcover (incorrect format)
- Ebook royalty rule linked to royalties: retail. (royalty basis should be net receipts not retail price)
- Hardcover royalty rule linked to criteria: All activities (should be format: Hardcover)
We recommend that users generate this report periodically. Use it look for royalty rules with incorrect or missing applies-to criteria and incorrect royalty rates.
This update is available for all licensed users of EasyRoyalties Version 4. You can download it from the Options & settings > About menu > Check for updates button.
