    When creating a customer account, it's necessary to add the bill cycle day (also known as the BCD or anniversary date) to determine which day of the month a customer's subscription will be billed on. Please let us know which field can be used to represent BCD.

    Example: 28th of May, so bill cycle day will be 28.

    We are using Account Management 666 to present accounts.

    Hi Rajnish
    A PartyAccount (and so by extension a BillingAccount) has an embedded reference to BillingCycleSpecification, as billStructure.cycleSpecification
    This specification has various offset fields, for instance billingDateShift, which I think is what you are looking for.
    Hope it helps.
