Viewing and Editing Bills

Follow

Bills are expenses where the supplier has charged you but you do not need to pay right away. Accounting teams enter these charges as bills to easily keep track of all expenses that need to be paid in the future.

We recommend, where possible, users should add all the relevant contacts and services / products of a transaction first before creating bills. This helps keep your accounting operations neat and avoids accidental duplication.

In this article, we will cover:
