How do I create an Owner Bill?

Learn how to create an Owner Bill by selecting a Schedule of Values Template, enter in your billing values for each line item, sign your bill, and send it to the accounting department for them to Notarize/Approve and submit to the Owner.

To create an Owner Bill for the first time on a project, from the left-side navigation menu, click Billing.
