The project type determines which invoicing procedure should be applied. Only the two external project types, time-and-material and fixed-price projects, can be invoiced. Time-and-material projects and fixed-price projects are always attached to a project contract.
Fixed-price projects – The customer invoice amount is based on invoice billing schedules. Invoicing is performed through an on-account setup, also referred to as a billing schedule. Fixed-price projects can be invoiced per project or per project contract.
Time-and-material projects – The customer invoice amount is based on transaction lines that are entered on projects. Transactions can be invoiced per project or per project contract.
Time-and-material projects and fixed-price projects can be attached to the invoice projects as follows:
On-account invoicing – Time-and-material projects and fixed-price projects can be invoiced on account. Two different types of on-account setups are required for the two project types.
Invoicing in the periodic section – Through the periodic functions, transactions can be invoiced across projects. The periodic functions provide an overview of transactions to be invoiced.
By using credit notes in invoicing – A credit note can be created for both time-and-material projects and fixed-price projects.
