Practice Manager only

MYOB Practice Manager lets you group clients together for billing and reporting by setting up Billing Groups. These billing groups which are comprised of one parent and at least one corresponding child client.

You can bill directly at the parent level or, if you wish to be able to see any bills generated for the child on the child account, you can also bill at the child level.

 

The WIP of the child and the parent is recorded against the client code entered during timesheet data entry.

 

Billing groups are viewed, created and maintained through the Billing Group tab on the client page. In MYOB AE, it’s also done in the Group tab on the Assignment Details page (AE).

From these you can see any child clients attached to the selected client or assignment (AE)/job (AO) or view the parent client or assignment/job. Billing groups can also used for reporting purposes.

Creating billing groups of clients or assignments/jobs allows for more than one client’s WIP to be included on the one bill.

To setup groups you can either:

  • enter into the parent client and add the child clients, or
  • enter into the child clients and add the parent client from within the Billing Group tab of the client.

See Billing Group tab and Group tab for more information.

In MYOB AE, if you do not want to set up a billing group, you can add a client assignment/job, if required, by selecting Add Assignment /  Add Assignment to Client or Add Jobs / Add Jobs to Client in the Bill Amounts window.
