    Billing Item

    Main source of data for billing are Billing Items. They represent any service or product to be charged in period of Billing Date to the client.


    Billing Items are used to charge mainly the following products / services:

    • Any budgeted items (items converted from Estimates approved by clients)
    • Recurring Fees (fixed charges that are generated by Recurring Fee template)
    • Ad-hoc product or service billing (manually added Billing Item record)

    Tracking Categories (Team, Org. Unit,...) Default assignment of the revenue for the Billing Item to the tracking category (may be overriden by controlling allocation scheme in management accounting).

    Recurring Fees

    Recurring fees may be entered as template for creating Billing Items regularly.


    There are the following intervals, in which Billing Items are created based on the Recurring Fees set-up:

    • Daily
    • Weekly
    • Monthly
    • Quarterly
    • Yearly
    • On activity create

    The Billing Item is created in any interval from Valid From or Billing Date fields based on frequency or once during creation of the Activity.

    The Tax Date is set in relative distance to the Billing Date. So if you want the Tax date being previous month to the Billing Date, set it accordingly.

    Please note that selecting Project in Context field is required.

    In case you want the Billing Item created based on Recurring Fee to enter Draft Invoice immediately, set it to either For Approval or Approved Billing Status.
