Do you want to create your invoice on a specific date that is not aligning to the service period on the order? Then you can use the Billing day offset feature.
By standard Younium creates an invoice for a charge when the billing target date is in the next service period for the charge but with configuring a billing day offset, you can customize when invoices should be created.
Billing day offset is configured directly on the Order charge, on the Financial details card.
Default value is: From Order.
Example on how to use it:
We have a product charge that starts 2021-11-01 which normally means that an invoice will be created when the target date is 2021-11-01 or later. However by adding a -75 day offset this charge will be invoiced with an invoice batch with target date 2021-08-17 or later.
This configuration is useful with scenarios such as:
"We always invoice 45 days before next service period"
"We have agreed to invoice 10 days after the service period"
- Billing day offset is only available for charges that are invoiced in Advance.
- If you are only interested in customizing the billing day first time on a charge (when it has never been invoiced before), you can use Specific first invoice date
