Understanding your income reports

Understanding your income reports

SimplePractice provides 5 reports related to your practice’s income. Understanding what information is included in each report will allow you to leverage the payment data present in your account, to improve the billing process for both clinicians and clients. Each report can also be downloaded as a CSV or Excel file, allowing you to easily review or print as needed. 

In this guide, we’ll cover the following reports:

Note: For information on the Analytics dashboard and other reports, see Understanding your Analytics dashboard and reports.

Income allocation

The Income allocation report shows the total amount of payments received by the clinician within a pay period. To learn more about this report, see Navigating the Income allocation report.

Note: If you’re a group practice interested in learning more about using this report for payroll, see Calculating payroll for group practices.


The Income report details your monthly total income including client payments, insurance payments, gross income, credit card fees, and resulting net income.

Note:  A “--” symbol means there’s no information to report. 

Export information

We recommend exporting this report to detail your end of year totals. If you export this report as a CSV or Excel file, you can edit it to best serve your accounting or reporting needs.

Referral income

The Referral income report details where referrals came from and the Total Revenue attributed to those referrals. Total Revenue is the lifetime revenue from clients that have a referral source associated with them.

The Referral income report populates based on the date that a client was added, so a client will only appear on the reports if the date range selected includes the date when that client was added.

Note: For more information on adding a referral to a client’s file, see Editing a client’s information.

This report also allows you to manage your referral sources. Clicking Manage Sources will allow you to remove sources from your list.

You also have the option to export the Referral income report as an Excel or CSV file.

Note: Each role has access to this report except for Schedulers, Supervisors, and Clinicians with Basic Access. Only Administrators will have access to the Total Revenue column and to Manage Sources
