Running a prebilling report for a client

Prebilling reports are used when a practice would like to see a printed report of the work that has been completed for a client. A practice may use a prebilling report as the basis on which to raise an invoice for a client, or as an alternative to making their allocations directly in the billing screen. Prebilling reports are generated at the individual client level (unless the client is a parent client, in which case all the WIP recorded for their child clients will also be included). There are four prebilling reports available in the Client page > Assignment tab. Note The Pre Billing Reports toolbar link is available on all tabs for assignments.

Run a prebilling report for a client

  1. Click the Clients button Client toolbar button on the toolbar.
    The Find Clients page will open.

  2. In the Find Clients window, in the Search for field enter the name or search criteria for the client you want to produce a report for.

  3. Click OK or press the [Enter] key.

  4. In the results list, double–click the required client.

  5. In the Client window, click the Assignment tab, and then click one of the PreBilling... buttons depending on how you want the client's WIP categorised:

  • for a report categorised by type, click the PreBilling Report by Type Pre-Billing Report by Type button button. You are prompted to enter a date.  This report is ordered by the task codes that the employees used to code their timesheets for the individual client.

This report is ordered by the employee who coded the time for the individual client and then by task code. This is useful when there may be a few people working on the assignments.
  • for a report categorised by month, click the PreBilling Report by Month Pre-Billing Report by Month button  This report is ordered by the months in which time was coded for the individual client and by employees. It is useful for practices that bill on a monthly basis or to ensure that there is no old WIP on the WIP ledger which should be written off.
  • for a report categorised by group, click the PreBilling Report by Group Pre-Billing Report by Group button button. The report id ordered by assignment and employees for the client.
