Client Invoices are referred to as Tax Invoices. An invoice describes the nature and value of services or goods being sold. Additional fields and information can be displayed, according to your business or legal requirements.

A Tax Invoice is usually issued when a CE is approved by the client. There are 3 ways to create an invoice, from the Cost Sheet, the Job Bag and the Add New button.

There are 5 options for populating the Tax Invoice values. These options can be accessed with unique shortcut letters. The options are:

  • M - Bill amount manually - sets values to zero and allows you to enter an amount to bill.
  • F - Bill the Full/Outstanding Value of the Cost Estimate - enters the full remaining amount to be billed. This is the default billing option when creating new Tax Invoices.
  • 5 - Bill 50% of the cost estimate - populates 50% of the total Cost Estimate value.
  • O - Bill other % of the cost estimate - allows you to enter a percentage of the Cost Estimate to be billed (e.g. 25%, or 75%).
  • A - Bill using marked-up actual costs incurred for the estimate - populates the marked-up actual cost from Supplier Invoices (Act Cost + Mkup) for external work types.
