Billing Software for Accounting Firms: Get Paid On Time and in Full

Corvee Billing Software for Accounting Firms

Let’s face it, no one likes to pay bills. Your clients don’t enjoy getting them and you don’t enjoy having to send them out. That said, it is a necessity because your firm must get paid, right? This blog will cover the latest advancements in accounting firm billing technology and how you can begin implementing a better system for your clients to pay on time and in full.

The Problem with Invoicing Accounting Clients

A common issue among accountants is either getting paid by clients late, or worse, not in full. This stems from a variety of reasons. Some accounting firms never charge upfront for services, and naturally some businesses take advantage of that, either intentionally because they don’t want to pay the expense or unintentionally because they actually can’t pay the invoice when it comes due. 

Charging clients upfront before services are rendered is one way to help solve this problem. We know of too many accountants who have way too much AR—and having too much in AR is not a good thing. It means you’re spending time and energy chasing invoices that you’ve already worked for. 

A second issue with invoicing is simply the cumbersome process involved. Oftentimes accountants are using outdated or inefficient billing systems that take longer than necessary to create and send invoices. Then there’s the issue of actually receiving payments. Are you getting physical checks in the mail and having to take trips down to your local bank? Are you accepting credit cards where you lose a percentage of each sale due to credit card fees? You don’t actually have to do those things.

Finding the Right Payment Platform for Accountants

We know that not every person who comes through your sales funnel and converts into a paying client will pay upfront and in full. Even those who do want to pay in full at the beginning are not always going to be able to do so due to cash flow. Clients may require multiple forms of payment, their card may get declined, or they need a payment schedule that further complicates things. 

Some clients may require a specialized payment plan, need an invoice sent over the phone and a variety of other issues. Thus, in many of these situations, you need billing support. Oftentimes accounting firms will hire a billing representative because they don’t have the time to deal with all these issues themselves. 

Finding a person to help is part of the solution, but what about simply finding the right billing software for accountants so that payments become as seamless as possible?

Corvee Payments Enables Multiple Ways to Get Paid

Corvee Payments is one of the pieces of the Corvee software platform, and it remotely accepts credit and debit card payments, including ACH payments, directly in the client portal. This allows you to store all of your client’s payment information in one spot so you have control over when to charge them.

With our accounting payments software, invoices are seamlessly created for all services and sent to the client via the portal for payment, making life easier for you and your staff. Plus, thousands of integrations are available to work with other applications you’re already using. 

So, what does this all mean? Practically speaking, it means never waiting for an invoice again because Corvee Payments give you control over the processing of all credit card and ACH payments. The best part is, you’ll be able to pass on processing fees to clients, so those pesky credit card fees don’t eat into your net profit.

Being accountants ourselves, we know how important it is to collect payment information while you’re on the phone with clients, set up recurring payments, automatically update credit card information when it expires and more. That’s why we created this software with the goal of you maintaining control over how clients pay your firm. 

You should have a billing and payments platform that allows you to be paid remotely, create invoices automatically, and add your custom branding so that you can invoice how you want, when you want. Corvee does all this plus supplies you with templated agreements, engagement letters, questionnaires and file requests for each type of engagement your firm sells.
