  • How to E-invoice your clients?



In LEXZUR you can e-invoice your clients. You can activate this option following a set of simple steps.

  • Activate E-Invoicing:

First, from the Billing in the main menu, go to the Settings, within the Advanced options. 

Under Entities, choose Setup Entities.

 Choose the Entity for which you want to activate the E-invoice option and click on the green edit button. Go to the E-invoicing field and choose Active. Make sure to add all the fields like the address details, tax number, and phone, then click Save.

Changing this value is not reversible, Once you enable the e-invoicing, you cannot disable it later for the current entity

After Activating this feature, E-invoicing will be applied to this specific Entity. You could always have multiple entities. Therefore, this feature could apply to entities for which e-invoicing is required. Now, let’s have an example of how to e-invoice a client.

  • Create Invoice:

Go to Invoices and create a new invoice. You must follow some steps.

First, the Client's Details: Specify the Client's Account, and choose the invoice template from the predefined list of templates.

Once the invoice is saved as open, the system will provide the invoice number automatically

The client's details such as the address, Tax number, and so on, are all fields required by ZATCA. Therefore, these details will be retrieved automatically from the contact's page, and you can edit them on the fly.

The next step is to link matters along with their corresponding time logs, expenses, and bill items to the invoice.

Skip to Items directly if you don't want to link matters

Under the Matters Page, you will find all the matters related to the selected client, where you can select the matters that you want to link to your invoice.

Additionally, you can search by the Matter Name, Practice Area, Assignee, and Status.

Import the Time Logs, Expenses, and Bill Items related to the matters you selected, then submit and continue.

You can filter the time logs by date prior to the selection.

You have the option to add Tax at the level of all the imported time logs. 

Additionally, you can import expenses that are not related to matters, so all client-related expenses can now be invoiced.

The import Expenses window will allow you to select from expenses related to matters or miscellaneous expenses.

In the third step, you will view or edit all imported time logs, expenses, and bill items or you can add additional services.

Moreover, the action wheel on the top right, allows you to do further modifications such as changing the discount level, therefore, you can perform discounts on the level of each item in the invoice, on the level of the invoice total amount before tax, and on the level of the invoice total amount after-tax. This advanced option will allow more flexibility when invoicing your clients.

To add a new service you can simply choose from a list of predefined services and you can add a new one on the fly.

Last but not least, the additional info page is where you must specify some additional invoice details, such as the P.O#, Terms, Date, and Due Date.

A system reminder can also be set up to notify you before a specific deadline for the invoice.

Furthermore, you can include payment details and bank account details or any specific details on your invoices via predefined notes.

The remaining fields, such as invoice type, transaction type, and payment method, are E-invoicing Required Fields and must be filled out as well:

  • Invoice Type: It can be Tax Invoice, Simplified Tax invoice or Both

The invoice default status will be set as a draft. In other words, the system will not allocate an automatic number, unless you activate the invoice from the top right button, changing created the invoice status to open. When you choose open, the system will give this invoice an automatic unique identifier number.

Once the invoice is created, some restrictions will be applied, such as this invoice cannot be altered or deleted.

You can now preview your invoice using selected templates, view its details, send emails, print, and export it to Word or to PDF based on the predefined templates, from the list of actions on the General Info page.

Once this invoice is exported, you will find all the required information and the QR Code. You can, therefore, send it to your client.

Whenever you receive payments, you can easily record them. The Payment Made page allows you to see all payments made on the invoice, with the option to print a receipt.
