Prebilling reports are used when a practice wants a printed report of the work completed for a client. A practice may use a prebilling report as the basis to raise a bill for a client or as an alternative to making their allocations on the Billing Main page.
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 on the TASKS bar of the Client page > Assignments tab (AE)/Jobs tab (AO):
By type—This report is organised by the task codes that the employees used to code their timesheets for the individual client.
By employee—This report is organised 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/jobs.
By month—This report is organised 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.
By group—The report is organised by assignment/job and employees for the client. This is used to show the parent/child clients in a billing group and to display the total WIP liability for a group of clients.
In MYOB AE, Prebilling Report on the TASKS bar is available on all tabs for assignments.
