Here is the new version of this article in the Veracross Community.


  1. On the Accounts Receivable homepage, click on the “Create Finance Charges” link under the Charge / AR Processing section.
  2. Choose Option Code: 8.
  3. Choose an AR Item Date: the date that will be assigned to the AR Invoice Items created by this process.
  4. Choose School Year and AR Invoice Type.  Specify the type of AR Invoices to be considered when calculating Finance Charges.
  5. Choose a Catalog Item and assign an Override Finance Rate if necessary.  If the rate on the previously made Finance Charge Catalog Item is different than normal, you may specify an override rate here.  Note that this rate will be used as either a percentage or a flat amount based on the specific finance charge item selected.
  6. Specify the Finance Cut Off Date: all unpaid invoice items with due dates on or before this date will be factored into creating finance charges.
  7. Click Add Create Finance Charges (this step prepares the procedure to run, but does not create the finance charges).
  8. Click on the Actions button and select the Create Finance Charges action (this step will create the finance charges).
  9. When this process concludes, run the Unposted Invoice Items report on the Accounts Receivable homepage under the Reports section, to verify the finance charges created.
  10. Post the AR Invoice Items when ready.
