    5. Save and close the record
       
    6. Repeat for all products and billing items to be included in the finance charge generation

  • The Client record
    1. Open each client record
       
    2. Select the Client 2 tab and mark the Assess finance charges on balances due from this client checkbox
       
    3. Repeat for each client to be included in the finance charge generation



     
  • Charges
    1. Select the client's Activity tab
       
    2. Open each charge or invoice to be included in the finance charge generation
       
    3. On the Transaction tab of each charge, mark the Include transaction in finance charge calculations checkbox
       
    4. On the Invoice tab of each invoice, mark the Subject to finance and late charges checkbox
       
    5. In each Invoice, select the Line Items tab
       
    6. Open each line item
       
    7. On the Line Item tab, mark the Include transaction in finance charge calculations checkbox
       
    8. Save and close the record


      Note: Marking this checkbox does not affect already generated charges
       


Note: Finance charges will only be calculated for those charges for which the client is responsible. If another client is made responsible for their charges, that client will receive the finance/late charge, if applicable.
