The Accounts Receivable (AR) module of Kuali Financials is used for billing non-student receivables, creating invoices, recording payments, issuing credit memos, tracking outstanding receivables, and viewing historical data regarding customer charges and payments.


The Accounts Receivable (AR) module also includes functionality for managing invoicing activities related to Contracts & Grants. When this functionality is turned on, several additional menu options display and the Agency, Award and Customer documents have additional tabs and fields to collect information needed by Contracts & Grants Billing. These additional menu items, tabs and fields are described within the AR and CG documentation and identified as being available when Contracts & Grants Billing is turned on.


Contracts & Grants Billing provides the ability to invoice by account, award and contract control account. Invoicing methods include Cost Reimbursable, Pre-Determined Billing Schedule, Milestone and Letter of Credit Billing. Contracts & Grants Billing also provides functionality related to Collections,  including the Collection Activity document, Dunning Letter generation and a Tickler Report for tracking collection activity follow-up. Contracts & Grants invoices can be created manually or via batch. Contracts & Grants Invoices are stored within regular AR and payments are applied in the same way as regular AR invoices.


This guide provides information about using the functions of the AR module.
