How do I create a billing period for an invoice?


Billing Period defines the billing cycle used by a project's team and invoice contacts on Procore's owner and subcontractor invoices. In addition to defining the frequency of the billing cycle (for example, monthly or weekly), a billing period also defines the billing cycle's start/end date and an invoice's due date. 


Common billing periods include:

  • Monthly
    Examples of common monthly billing periods are below:
    • Starts on the 1st day of a month and ends on the 30th of the same month.
    • Starts on the 15th of one month and ends on the 14th of the following month. 
  • Weekly 
    Examples of common weekly billing periods are below:
    • Starts on Sunday of this week and ends on Saturday of this week.


You have two options to create a billing period in Procore project's Invoicing tool:

  • Automatic Billing Periods. Choose this option when your billing periods have a consistent start, end and due date. For example, weekly or monthly. See Create Automatic Billing Periods.
  • Manual Billing Periods. Choose this option when you need to create billing periods for your invoices and your billing periods are not on a consistent schedule. See Create Manual Billing Periods.
If your Procore user account has been granted 'Admin' level permissions to the project's Commitments tool, you have sufficient permission to create automatic or manual billing periods with the project's Invoicing tool.
