Cancel and Rebill an Invoice in TimelyBill

Cancel and Rebill an Invoice in TimelyBill

Let's face it, producing a telecom invoice can be complicated. Even with careful data entry, there are scenarios where invoices are missing data, or have other issues.  While auditing helps identify invoices that contain the wrong information, correcting them can be more of a challenge.  

TimelyBill has developed a simple process for users to quickly fix and regenerate invoices. This feature helps protect your revenue and prevent customer churn!

THE UN-BILLING & REINVOICING PROCESS
It begins with the removal or purging of the invoice, followed up by correcting any billing errors, and then is completed by generating the new invoice.

STEP 1 - CANCEL OR UN-BILL THE INVOICES
Users with the proper permissions can purge a single invoice or multiple invoices (if the IDs are in sequential order). Using TimelyBill's admin screen, users specify the invoice range to be unbilled (i.e., from Invoice #1000 to Invoice #1100).

The unbill process removes ALL invoices within the specified range. Any previous steps performed to produce the original invoice(s) get reversed.
STEP 1 - CANCEL OR UN-BILL THE INVOICES
STEP 2 - CORRECT THE ISSUE
Problems need to be fixed before the re-invoice process initiates. Here are a few reasons why customers need re-invoicing:
  1. Service address for taxation was incorrect and needs to be changed.
  2. Usage was not loaded or before the invoice run was initiated.
  3. A first-time invoice for a new customer is wrong due to incorrect pricing, quantity, etc.
STEP 2 - CORRECT THE ISSUE
STEP 3 - REBILL OR REINVOICE
TimelyBill's "Invoice Now" button is accessed via the account summary screen. Clicking the button triggers two possible modes of invoice generation. Users can select either a One-Time or Recurring invoice method. User permissions are required for this step.
STEP 3 - REBILL OR REINVOICE
TimelyBill allows communications service providers the unique ability to unbill and rebill customer invoices directly from within the system. This feature helps you fix incorrect invoices, generates new bills, and send them out to customers promptly.
