Billing Best Practices

Do these actions daily if you oversee billing for your business. These best practices will help you get paid faster, spend less time on collections and ensure your accounting is up to date. 

Confirm Billable Items & Approve Jobs

Go through completed visits/jobs on a daily basis to confirm all costs and billable items are correct. Confirm materials, expenses, equipment, labor and service items have correct quantities, costs and prices. 

  1. Open Completed Jobs/Visits Page
  2. Apply Filters: Can be whatever you desired, below are some common options:
    1. Date Filter On: Completed on
    2. Date Range: Yesterday, Last 7 days, etc.

    3. Assignee or Operation: This allows you to approve groups of visits at once
    4. Confirm billable information
      1. Review all jobs/visits, make desired edits to ensure billable items and costs are logged correctly
    5. Batch Approve 
      1. Check All, and Select Approve 
        *Note: Approving visits/jobs will trigger invoice to sync to Quickbooks by default for one off jobs and per visit invoicing visits on recurring jobs.
