This article lists the Standard Billing Formulas included with Procare for common child attendance or schedule billing scenarios.
Standard Billing Formulas included with Procare can generate charges for child times based on the child’s Attendance, Schedule (including schedule exceptions), Overtime (any time outside a child’s scheduled hours), and Extra hours (hour totals that exceed scheduled hour totals). If your billing scenario is more complex, you may need to contact Technical Support for a quote on a custom billing formula to fit your situation.
You can review each of these formulas by going to Procare Home > Configuration > System > Accounting Management > Family Accounting > Billing Formulas.
