Apply Percentage To Each Invoice
This check box is only available when the Percent radio button is selected.
Check this box if the percentage specified for this add-on is to be applied to each invoice. Each time an invoice that references this add-on is posted, the system calculates the add-on’s current invoice amount based on the specified percent and the sum of the invoice amounts for all regular and change order items on the subcontract.
If this check box is not selected, the full amount of the add-on is invoiced all at once.
There is a subcontract totaling $50,000 and a –1.00% add-on is set up for the subcontract. The total add-on amount for that subcontract will be $–500.00. If the Apply Percentage to Each Invoice check box is selected, and an invoice is posted against the subcontract for $10,000, the add-on amount for that invoice will be $–100.00. If the Apply Percentage to Each Invoice is not in use, the total add-on amount of $–500.00 will be applied to the invoice.
