The Write-Off Report details all write-offs on invoices. Write-offs are displayed per invoice and as in a summary for your entire firm. This is the ideal report for gleaning how much has been written off by matter, matter type, responsible lawyer, fee credit lawyer, invoice, client, or even your entire firm.
Each invoice entry provides information on the invoice number, client, invoice date, matter, matter type, type of charge (fee/expense), timekeeper/fee allocation recipient, original invoice total, write-off amount, new invoice total after write-off, and the account containing the amount that was written off.
The firm summary displays the charge type (fees/expenses), timekeeper/fee allocation recipient, original invoice total, write-off amount, and new invoice total after the write-off.
|NOTE: The write-off report does not include credit notes or refunds.|
There are basic and advanced setting options to further define what is displayed on the report.
The Date range filter allows you to set a range based on the write-off date.
The Show detail layout option dictates whether the details for specific invoices are displayed. Show firm summary controls whether the firm summary is included in the report.
Advanced options provide settings to further drill down to return only information pertinent to your purposes.
Selecting items in the filter drop-downs ensures that only items that meet those criteria are included in the report.
For instance: Selecting a specific matter will only display results and figures for that particular matter.
Filter options include matter type, responsible lawyer, fee credit lawyer, invoice number, matter, and client.
TIP: Multiple filter options can be selected by clicking on one option and then clicking on the box again and clicking on another option.
Additional layout options provide insight into the specific people, roles, accounts, and matters to which write-offs have been attributed.
