In the above settings, interest at the annual rate of 18% will begin to accrue 30 days after the posted date of the invoice. These settings will be used for all Time & Billing and Accounts Receivable invoices that are posted.

 

SETTING INTEREST RATES FOR MATTERS THAT DIFFER FROM THE DEFAULT RATE

 

Interest rates can be set for individual matters at rates that differ from the Default Interest Rate as set above. To set an interest rate for an individual matter:

 

Client module > Matter tab > Enter file number > Click on Billing side tab

You will see the default Interest Rate and Interest Free Days are bot set to Standard ("Std"). This means that will use the values as set in the defaults in the Company module > Default tab (above).

To use a different Interest Rate and Interest Free Days for an individual Matter, simply type in the values you want to use over the default "Std" on the above screen.

To enter an interest rate of 0%, you must type in a NEGATIVE NUMBER in the Interest Rate field and hit the "tab" key:

Eg. Type in "-1"
