gross sum


Explanation:
dango=in bulk, in batch; keijou=sum: insurance account gives gross sum of some amount. 丸いもの。また、ひとかたまりになった. in http://dictionary.goo.ne.jp/srch/jn/だんご/m0u/

Example sentence(s):
  • 団子, だんご, dumpling. 団子になる, だんごになる, group together .... This is a gross generalization that's surely inaccurate, but in general,
  • 計上, けいじょう, count up. 集計, しゅうけい, sum, total. 設計, せっけい, design, plan ...... 総量, そうりょう, total amount, gross weight ...

Reference: Month-end

Reference information:
The only reference I have managed to find is in the reference quoted below (scroll down to entry 94). It seems as though the term is used to refer to the practice of calculating a batch of insurance premiums all together at the end of the month, rather than doing them one by one through the month.

How about "batch summation"?

Example sentence(s):
  • 月末集中だんご計上代理店に「お願いは何度もしてるんですが、一向に改善し てくれません」って、平然と、営業会議でいいわけする○カ。
