the accounting date: Ajera automatically enters the invoice date
or the billing cutoff date in the Accounting Date field, depending on
the option you selected in the Company > Preferences > Billing tab
> Invoice Accounting Date field. If you use multi-company, the option is in the Company > Company > Billing/Payroll tab > Invoice Accounting Date field.
You can change the accounting date.
For example, you need to reissue an invoice printed as Final in a prior
period, but because you already produced financial statements for that
period, you want the accounting entries posted to the current period.
the invoice number: If you change the invoice number to a larger
number, Ajera changes the numbering for subsequent invoices that you print.
It does so by changing the last invoice number on the Company
Preferences, Company, Project
Command Center, or Client
window, depending on how you chose to number invoices in the Company > Preferences
> Billing tab > Auto Assign Invoice
Numbers By field.
- About effective cost: If your billing rate tables are based on effective cost, you can invoice salaried time only after running payroll because this is when Ajera calculates the effective cost rates.
