Know what you’re owed with job balance statements

10 September 2020

When you’re busy on site, it’s not always easy to keep tabs on what your customers owe. So, today’s update brings you a bang-up-to-date look at each job’s balance – handy for giving late payers a nudge, and keeping your cashflow healthy

Whether you’re juggling loads of jobs or chipping away at a long-running project, it’s good to know where you stand money-wise. That’s the idea behind our new job balance statements, designed to show you – and your customer – where you stand, at a glance.

They’re a great way to avoid confusion, keep customers in the loop and make sure nobody forgets to pay their bills.

Even better, they’ll show what a super-organised pro you are.

How do they work?

Whenever you win a job, or get a quote accepted, we’ll automatically set up a job balance statement, showing the budget for the job. 

Then, whenever you send an invoice, get a payment or give a credit note, we’ll automatically update what you’re owed, so you can see what’s still due (or overdue) and when it should be paid. 

And if a job changes scope once it’s started? No problem. When you send an updated quote, we’ll automatically add any extra costs to your running total too.

Where can I find them?

You can take a look at your balance statement for any job, any time. Just go to Any job > Invoices > View balance statement.

They’re quick and easy to view, download and print – and if you need to give a customer a nudge, you can email them a copy in a few quick clicks.

What do they look like?

Here’s a quick example…

Sound good? If you’ve already got jobs on the go in YourTradebase, you’ll find real-life job balance statements for everything you’re doing right now, just by going to Job > Invoices > View balance statement. Jump in and take a look.

Happy balance checking!
