Billing Formulas require the Attendance Tracker module. Formulas allow fees to be based on a child’s actual attendance or their schedule. Formulas are assigned to the Billing Box of each child.

Use Billing Formulas when charges vary based on attendance for things like hourly rates, overtime and late pick ups. Some child-centered businesses use just Billing Cycles or Billing Formulas while others use both.

Getting There

  1. From the Procare Home screen click Configuration > System.
  2. Go to Accounting Management > Family Accounting > dbl-click Billing Formulas.

Set up Billing Formulas

Standard formulas are included to accommodate typical situations like hourly rates, half day / full day, before & after school, overtime, extra days, late pick up and so forth.

Let Procare Support help determine which formulas are most appropriate for your situation. Custom Formulas may be created for a fee.
