To provide Procore users with information about subcontractor invoices in Procore. 


In Procore, a subcontractor invoice originates in the Project Commitments tool. Before you can create an invoice, your project team must create a commitment for the project, establish a billing period, and decide which internal users and/or external collaborators will be granted permission to submit new invoices.

A Subcontractor Invoice is a request for payment submitted by a business or individual who has entered into a binding agreement with another contracting party. In Procore, a subcontractor invoice is an equivalent term for a payable invoice.
