Your financial reports are presented as groups of transactions, displayed in distinct rows. Each row represents a unique combination of a book, transaction type (product type identifier), price (proceeds/customer Price), store, sale or return and promo (if applicable). Each of the columns reference different aspects of a group of transactions. The columns presented are detailed in the Payments and Financial Reports Guide.
iTunes Connect is displaying payment information for payments made beginning with the July 2010 reports. Prior payment related information is not available.
If you see multiple Name and Number combinations in a drop down menu at the top, it indicates that more than one Legal Entity has been associated with the account. Each option for selection corresponds to different Legal Entity that has been reported to and/or paid.
The earned amount represents the proceeds, net of commission, in a given period for the region and revenue type displayed. The amount will agree to the total of the associated financial report.
Total Owed displays the estimated amount owed to you in the currency of each reported region and revenue type.
Proceeds is an estimate of the amount due based on converting the amount owed to your bank account currency. The actual payment may differ from the proceeds based on variances in foreign exchange rates as well as reductions for applicable withholding taxes.
Balance Carried Forward is made up of any prior period amounts unpaid (or returned) and carried over to the current period.
The withholding tax displayed represents amounts withheld by Apple and remitted to taxing authorities in accordance with government requirements specific to the territory.
Withholding tax is specific to particular stores where transactions occurred and/or where payments are being distributed by Apple. Withholding taxes can vary based on your location, the completion of any optional tax forms and the tax treaties entered into by your country.
Amounts added to your payment to meet your tax requirements in certain countries. For example, Goods and Services Tax (GST) generally applies if you are either based in Australia or based outside of Australia but registered for GST.

A line item will have a zero value if you elected to waive royalties for a particular product. Examples include, but are not limited to, the Single of The Week, promotional content available a la carte, and certain code based promotions.
This could be due to the "Sum of Songs Rule", which is reflected in your contract. The wholesale price for any multi-track album may not exceed the aggregate price of the single tracks on that album when sold separately as single tracks. For example, an album with 10 $0.99 tracks cannot sell for more than $9.90 (10 x 99 cents) on the US iTunes Store. If you select a wholesale tier for an album that causes the Sum of Songs Rule to be triggered, then the album will be priced accordingly (at Sum of Songs) and any sales of the album will be reported to you as sales of the individual tracks.
There is a Promo Code column in your financial reports used to identify certain transactions, including complete my album sales. Album sales resulting from CMA are marked as "CMA" while track credits are marked as "CMA-C". The Sale/Refund column will display an "R" for tracks being credited, while displaying an "S" for the albums completed.
In accordance with the music contract, the royalties we pay in Japan may be adjusted due to Author's Rights we owe to collection societies, including JASRAC. The contracted royalty rates were based on the prevailing industry-wide royalty rates (currently estimated at 7.7% of retail price, calculated based on JASRAC's published rate). We adjust the wholesale prices based on any higher payments for Author's Rights that we are obligated to make as a result of the application of fixed minimum royalties imposed by Societies (including JASRAC) and/or based on applicable rates imposed by Societies other than JASRAC that are higher than the prevailing industry-wide royalty rates.
When a payment made to you is returned, you will see the return at the top of the page highlighted in red as an amount added to the cumulative balance of what you are owed.
Once you make any necessary banking updates to resolve the return reason, we will attempt to repay the returned amount along with all other amounts owed within two payment cycles of your banking update.
If nothing was purchased in a region during a month, no corresponding report for that region will be generated for download on iTunes Connect.
