Objective

To manually create a new billing period for a project's subcontractor invoices.

Background

Billing Period defines the billing cycle used by a project's team and invoice contacts on Procore's invoices and progress billings. In addition to defining the frequency of the billing cycle (for example, monthly or weekly), a billing period also defines the billing cycle's start/end date and the due date for the invoice or progress billing. 

Examples

Common billing periods include:

  • Monthly
    Examples of common monthly billing periods are below:
    • Starts on the 1st day of a month and ends on the 30th of the same month.
    • Starts on the 15th of one month and ends on the 14th of the following month. 
  • Weekly 
    Examples of common weekly billing periods are below:
    • Starts on Sunday of this week and ends on Saturday of this week.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    Additional Information: 
    • When you create a new billing period Procore automatically sets:
      • The new billing period's status to Open.
      • The previous billing period's status to 'Closed.' 
      • You can only have one (1) billing period in the Open status at any given time. 
    • You can only create billing periods in the Project level Invoicing tool.
      • You cannot create or manage billing periods at the Company level.
    • These Invoice Management features rely on billing periods:

Steps

  1. Navigate to the project's Invoicing tool. 
  2. Optional: Click the Billing Periods tab.

    • From: Indicates the start date for the billing period. 
    • To: Indicates the end date for the billing period. 
    • Due Date: Indicates the date by which the invoice contact must submit the current invoice.  See Add Invoice Contacts to a Purchase Order or Subcontract.
       Notes
      • To create a new invoice after the 'Due Date' passes, your Procore user account must be granted 'Admin' permissions on the Commitments tool. 
      • After the due date passes, an Invoice Contact can no longer create a new subcontractor invoice. However, you may edit an existing invoice and submit that invoice for payment if the invoice is in the 'Draft' or 'Revise & Resubmit' status. For details, see Submit a New Invoice as an Invoice Contact.
  6. Click Create.
    Procore creates the new billing period and sets it to 'Open.' If you have previously created a billing period, Procore also automatically sets that billing period to 'Closed.'
