Adding a charge type
A charge type is a service or fee that you bill for.
After you create charge types, you add charge types to each business affiliate billing policy. Then you apply the business affiliate billing policies to each document to compute billing lines for that document. Therefore, every billing line must have a charge type.
To create a charge type:
- Select Administration>Charge Types. A list of charge types appears.
- Select Add from the toolbar up above.
- Enter a Charge Name for the charge type. This is the name that appears on the billing lines. It must be unique in the system.
- Optionally, enter the General Ledger Code associated with the charge type. This is the general ledger account associated with this charge type. It can be overridden on a per Owner basis in the business affiliate billing policies, however, it cannot be overridden for particular billing lines on documents that are being billed.
Note that charge types apply for your entire operation. If you have a multi-warehouse operation, you cannot make charge types that are specific to each warehouse.
- Select OK.
