The billing option allows preparation of
on-the-spot invoices for cash/credit card transactions and
export of both invoice data (for easier book-keeping) and
information on completed flights (to satisfy any more complex
billing requirements through a separate accounting package).
Invoices can be readily prepared using an on-screen step-by-step
form based on just the airfield logbook information as the
starting point with automatic look-up tables to calculate
charges such as landing and parking fees. The invoice template
is custom designed to include the airfield's details, with
space for customer details and manually entered costs. VAT
is calculated at the appropriate rate depending on the customer
and the items in question.
standard daily report of all flight arrivals can also be used
by the accounts department to prepare bills for other customers
with more complex requirements.
Standard invoice items include landing and parking fees (with
tables of international and domestic charges based on MTOW),
circuits and use of navaids/radar, fuel, ground handling and
catering services, plus landside and airside sundries.
