Net Renewal Rate with Renewals that have annual increases
How do folks deal with calculating Net Renewal Rates when a multiyear renewal has an annual step/increase function? For example, if you have a renewal contract that stays flat in Year 1, but increases by 5% in Year 2, do you wait until you hit that annual anniversary before comprehending the increase into your NRR calculation?

Do you charge customers monthly or annually?
I have it set in a way that we target our CSMs on their net revenue retention for their book of business. So if we apply a 5% increase in year 2, we may say they are targeted on a 15% NRR. We work out the % increase we expect by book of business rather than customer, if that makes sense?

Thanks @Will Pagden We charge annually for most customers. Appreciate the thoughts.

Decent question @Ronald Krisak  a hard one to answer via a comment here. I am at the early stage of introducing this at SAP (CSMs this year are not measured on NRR  just customer #, but my leadership team are) and we have a annual 105% target measured annually. You start the year with a base of X and you must get to X+5% by the end of that year. That will be made up of renewals, upsells & net new customers.
Any step increase is calculated at the start of each new financial year  but we use ACV (Annualised Contract Value) which gives me a greater, and longer term stable number to work with.Does this help/make sense? Happy to have a 121 chat if easier to throw ideas around.

@Matt Myszkowski I think I am following, but I'll take you up on your offer to chat. I'll reach out to you on LI. Thanks.

@Matt Myszkowski  does adding in Net New Customers throw off the formulas? I have seen that calculation before but the % increase was based off of their baseline going into the year versus layering in the new customers as that alone could more than cover the expected gain. Plus they would not be renewable in that period, assuming annual agreements.
