When moving your royalties to Stison, you may be coming from an existing system. If this is the case, then you will want to use this tab where you can add the state of each title prior to your royalties being taken over by Stison. This is vital if there are escalators in the contract terms. Fill in the blank fields accordingly:
Balance Date: This is the date at which you want the data to be inserted. This should be well before the start date of your royalties. Use a consistent date on all titles to make it easier for Stison to find the data if there are issues.
Previous Royalties: Use this area to record any un-earned advances and any royalties earned if you want it reported on. Generally, we are only interested in un-earned advances. Royalties earned is more for reporting, so you can show a value sold against a royalties paid over old data.
Previous Sales: Record any previous sales in this area. Break the sales data down by sales type. This is only relevant if your title has escalation or you want the reports to show lifetime unit sales.
As always, click on add another to add more rows to each area.
