Job Processing: Job Invoicing and Crediting

Job Invoicing and Crediting

Job Invoicing and Crediting - Job Header pane

This window is used for both the Process — Job Processing — Invoice a Job function and the Process — Job Processing — Credit on a Job function, with appropriate modifications to its appearance.

There are two methods of invoicing jobs:



Line Items Method

This method effectively allows you to invoice on a line by line basis in much the same way as a Sales Order transfers its line items to an Invoice on dispatch. This is useful where you want to itemise the invoice in detail and populate the sales history with parts. This method can be used if the General Invoicing (not line items) checkbox IS NOT checked in the Job Maintenance window.

General Method

This method ignores line items and allows you to invoice with general invoice lines in much the same way as an Invoice created in the Ledgers — Accounts Receivable — New Invoice (Not Dispatch) function. This method can be used if the General Invoicing (not line items) checkbox IS checked in the Job Maintenance window. When the Job is set for General Invoicing there is no Line Invoicing tab pane available to you in this window.

To create an Invoice for a Job, use the Line Invoicing tab pane, if available, in which you can apply lines to the invoice that you will process in the General Invoicing tab pane. You can always add extra non-specific line items in the General Invoicing tab pane.
