  1. If using recurring billing to process both tuition and costume charges, is there a report that allows me to view the total tuition received separately from the total costume fees received?
    Thank you,

    1. Hey Jason, Yes, absolutely. When you’re creating a charge you will assign it one of five (registration, tuition, costume, miscellaneous, and late fee) types. You’re able to run income reports based on these charge types. So you will know exactly how much income you brought in for each of them.

    2. Yes, assuming they tuition and costumes were entered as separate charges then the payments would be applied to them and that would be reflected in your income reports.
