The Billing Instruction is used to instruct Finance to bill the client (create the Tax Invoice). 

It is a text document with a pre-populated template which can be used to indicate how the client should be billed, e.g. 50% or Full.  This pre-populated template will include the sum total value of the CEs.

The Billing Instruction is attached to a Job Bag and can be created from the Add New dialog or from the Cost Sheet.

 Screen layout

The Billing Instruction screen contains selected information from the Job Bag, including the Client, Product, Element and others. 

You can only change or edit five of the header fields from this screen.

From the Editor tab, you can format your text to highlight important information. You can also email, print, and attach external documents to your billing instruction.
