Scheduled billing transactions

The following describes how the account and subaccount are determined for the debit and credit transactions that are created when invoices are created.

  1. The debit for a scheduled billing transaction is posted to the default accounts receivable account and subaccount.

To determine which accounts receivable account and subaccount are assigned to the customer, follow these steps:

    1. In the Modules menu, click Accounts Receivable.

    2. In the Accounts Receivable pane, click Customer Maintenance under Maintenance.

    3. In the Customer ID box, type the appropriate customer ID, and then click the Defaults tab.

      Note

      In the GL Accounts area, the value that appears in the accounts receivable Account box is the default accounts receivable account that is assigned to the customer. The value that appears in the Subaccount box is the default subaccount that is assigned to the customer.

  2. The credit for a scheduled billing transaction is posted to the account and subaccount that are defined in the billing rule. The billing rule is associated with the account category that you specified when you created the billing schedule. To determine which account and subaccount are associated with the account category that is defined in the billing rule, follow these steps:

    1. In the Flexible Billings pane, click Billing Rules Maint under Maintenance.

    2. In the Billing Rule box, type the billing rule ID that is associated with the project that you specified in the billing schedule.
