Print a Direct Bill Invoice

A direct bill invoice does not create a client receivable balance and cannot be printed by default. Each line of a direct bill invoice is automatically configured as "do not print".

Do Not Print

If desired, edit a direct bill invoice line first, then send the invoice to the printer.

  1. Find an invoice and open it in Policy & Billing.
  2. Double-click on the first invoice line at the bottom to open the line details window.
  3. Change Print Line to Yes. Repeat this process for each invoice line as desired.
  4. Select Print within the top toolbar.
  5. Enter any comments if comments are enabled.
  6. A print preview of the invoice will display.
  7. Select the Print icon to send the previewed documented to the default printer.

Print a Range of Invoices in a Batch

In addition to printing invoices individually, a range of invoices can be sent to the printer in a batch. A Client Profile can be configured to receive both statements and invoices, only statements, only invoices, Spanish invoices, or no forms.

Access to print a batch of invoices requires the current operator to have Security System: AR -> Print Invoices -> View access.

  1. From the Main Menu, select Client -> Print Invoices. (Print Invoices.png or Print Invoices with Comment.png will display.)
  2. By default, all invoices entered today are included.
  3. Enter a starting and ending invoice number to print a specific range of invoices.
  4. Select to print by either Entry or Effective Date.
  5. Choose the desired date range. Right-click in the date field to jump to a specific time frame.
  6. Optionally include an entry operator code to only print invoices entered by a specific user.
  7. Optionally include a department code.
  8. Optionally enter any invoice comment lines if enabled.
  9. Verify the invoice type of Invoice or Quote.
  10. Optionally choose to print Spanish Invoices only. Only clients configured to receive Spanish Invoices will be included. (Only available for invoice type Laser with comments.)
  11. Optionally choose to close policy transactions. Closing a policy transaction "locks" the transaction details from changing without first manually "unlocking" the transaction.
  12. Select Preview or Print.

The invoice format is specified in the Agency Profile. There are three supported invoice types for retail agencies, and one special invoice format for broker billed clients common to general agencies (MGAs).

Laser - This is the default format for retail clients.

Laser with comments - This is very similar to the default format and includes the option to add 3 comment lines on-the-fly. This invoice can also be printed in Spanish based on the client profile default , or when a range of invoices is printed.

Laser with pre (preprinted stationary) - This layout does not include grid lines and works best with preprinted stationary.

Spanish invoice - The Spanish invoice format is not configured in the agency profile. Individual retail clients are configured to receive Spanish Invoices on their client profile. Open the client profile and select Details -> A/R Forms -> Spanish Invoice.

Broker Billed invoice - This layout is not configured in the agency profile and is always used for broker billed invoices in both retail and general agencies. A broker billed invoice has a comment block that can be customized with defaults and modified on-the-fly for a specific invoice. With assistance from Agency Systems support, the commission percentage can be displayed per line or the GA commission line can be hidden by default.

Add Agency Logo to Invoice

Newton can incorporate a digital logo for your agency into your Newton retail invoices. Listed below are examples of where the digital logo can be placed. Given the space constraints on the reports, simple black and white logos, without text appear best.
