Set a Billed/Collected Calculation Method (Only Fixed & Contingent Matters)

Important

These settings determine how the system calculates timekeeper billed/collected amounts for fixed and contingent fee matters.

To set up the Billed/Collected calculation method for fixed & contingent fee matters:

  1. From the left navigation panel, click Setup.
  2. Atop the Setup left navigation, click Firm Settings.
  3. From the tabs atop the Firm Settings screen, Click Financial.
  4. In the Collected Fee Allocation Settings section of the Financial Screen, check the box beside Include Non Billable timecards value of Fixed/Contingency Fee matters in Collection by Timekeeper & Income Allocation Reports.

    Important

    This setting makes billed/collected fees for timekeepers in fixed/contingent fee matters appear on billing/collection by timekeeper reports.

    To calculate the timekeeper’s portion, the system divides the value of the timekeeper’s nonbillable timecards by the value of all nonbillable timecards on the matter.

    If the timekeeper’s portion is more than the timekeeper’s total nonbillable fee amount on the matter, the system caps the total billed fees at the total value of the timekeeper’s nonbillable time cards unless the checkbox in step 5 is also checked.

  5. Check the box beside Calculate Timekeeper’s collected fee proportional to overall fee collection instead of to value of Non Billable timecards entered

    Important

    This setting causes the timekeeper total billed fees to be calculated proportionally based on the value of nonbillable timecards.

    To calculate the portion, the system divides the value of the timekeeper’s nonbillable timecards by the value of all nonbillable timecards on the matter.

    There is no cap on the timekeeper’s billed amount.

  6. In the upper right corner, click Save.

    Caution

    You must also enter nonbillable timecards on the matter for each timekeeper entitled to a share of the fixed/contingent fee prior to generating the invoice. The system does not include timekeeper billed/collected amounts for matters with no nonbillable timecards entered.
