Unpost a bill

When a bill is accidentally posted , or a bill must be un-posted in order to re-select it, you can use the Unpost bill feature to un-post the bill. Note that once a bill is un-posted, a new prebill must be generated and all edits made to the original bill are lost.


Unposting cannot be reversed, it can only be undone by re-billing exactly as originally billed.


Manual Bills, and bills for which there have been Cash receipts, Credit Memos and Trust Adjustments applied, cannot be unposted. Instead, you need to reverse the cash receipt, credit memo, or trust adjustment that was applied to the bill. For instructions on reversing the bill, please see the Unpost a Manual Bill … topic.

Consolidated bill tips

  • PPD can be transferred in edit prebill on consolidations.
  • Fees or expenses can be held on a matter that is on a consolidated bill

Split bill tips

  • A matter can be split with as many matters as desired as long as the percentage totals 100.

  • When selecting prebills, you only need to select the client/matter the bill is to be split from.
  • When applying cash to a split bill, you must apply the cash to each of the matters to which the bill was split.  The bill number is the same for each of the  matters.  


    We advice not using the wizard on a split bill, because it does not know how you want the cash to be split.

  • A split bill includes fees, expenses, interest, taxes and surcharges.
  • A bill can be split over a threshold (for example, if you set a threshold of $500, it will split the bill if the total amount on the bill on the ‘split from’ matter reaches $500).
  • If you unpost a split bill, it un-posts the bill across the board, meaning that the ‘unpost’ appears on both the split from and the split to.


Normally discounts apply to fees but can be applied to a % of the bill (this is set up under the matter). What happens if the discount applied is greater than the fees billed? Example bill where Discount > Fees Billed

Example of the Ledger History

For Bill #65 a –$100.00 fee entry was made because the original amount of fees was only $400.00.  Since the discount was in the amount of $500.00 the process tries to apply the full amount of the discount to fees first.  Then a  -$100.00 cash entry was made to balance the negative fee entry.  Next a +$100.00 (the remaining $$ of the $500.00 discount) was applied to Expenses.  Note the comments line.
