Apple App Store payment cycles are confusing to even experienced developers and companies.
Apple’s fiscal year consists of Q1, Q2, Q3, and Q4 quarters, each with one 35-day month and two 28-day months. The fiscal year starts in October, so Apple’s fiscal 2021 started with Q1 in October 2020. Sounds weird, right?
Apple usually pays 33 days after the end of each fiscal month (with rare exceptions). So roughly speaking, it’s 4 weeks + 5 days.

Apple will release the 2022 fiscal calendar in September of 2021. We will update the calendar once the next fiscal calendar arrives.
