About Recurring Charges

Recurring Charges are used to apply a charge on a regular basis to a customer's account. Recurring Charges can be used to automatically invoice a customer for a service charge or fee on a repetitive basis. Recurring Charges can be combined together in a service record, or added individually to an account. Recurring Charges are applied to the customer account when statements are posted, creating invoices and accounts receivable for the customers that are being billed.
