We have a client with multiple matters for whom we have been charging a flat rate of $8,000 per month. One of the matters has become a huge file, which has resulted in a lot of negative fee entries in the ledger. Now, it has been decided we will send a bill to the client for the one large matter, right back to the beginning of the file (April 2009). Is there any way of doing this that doesn't involve reopening a whole year, deleting all the payments, re-invoicing and then reposting all the payments (which may give my accountant a heart attack)? I have printed a settlement bill, but the bottom line of the invoice includes all the negative entries, so I would have to do a "dummy" bill, which is fine, but I don't know how that will affect the ledger. What will happen when they pay it? Any help would be most appreciated. I am on PC Law Pro, v. 9.31c (soon to be upgrading to v. 10).
