Notices - Tab 3: Notice ChargesNotice Setup - Tab 3

Simplified Charge System

  • Minimum charge allows you to enter an amount to charge with this notice. For example: If you wish to charge a $20 late fee with this notice, enter $20 here.Note: If any of your Customers have a Custom late fee amt entered on their Agreements (more on this setting: #AGTTAB101), then StorMan will use the over-ride amount instead of any fee's you enter here on this screen.Note: StorMan bills rent automatically whenever a triggered Notice has the Bill next rent when this Notice is sent during Daily Processing option enabled (on the Notice Setup tab; more on this setting: #NTCTAB101). As such, you do not need to add any rental amounts or anything of that nature here. This tab should only be used for charging a fee with a Notice - such as a Late Fee.
  • ...or minimum percentage will charge a fee that is a percentage of the rent amount. For example: If you set this field to 10% and a Customer with a $100/month rental is late, their fee will be 10% of $100 - so in other words, $10. Note: If you enter both a 'Minimum Charge' and a 'Minimum Percentage' in the Simplified Charge System, StorMan will automatically use whichever works out to be of higher value & will use it. Note: Any charges entered into the Simplified Charge System will be assumed to include tax - unless the Items have been entered as 'tax exclusive', so add tax to items checkbox has been enabled in System Setup (more on this tab: #SYSSETTAB501) - in which case, StorMan will always add tax to whatever amounts you enter.

  • This area allows you to create complex fee-charging rules. For example: If the rental amount is below a certain value, charge $X - but if it is above a certain value, charge $Y instead... and so on.

Fee options...

  • Notice trigger and Fee calc based on rent owing will only charge the fee if the rental amount owing on the Customer's Agreement is greater than the amount specified in Minimum balance for arrears via Maintenance, System Setup, then the Accounting tab (more on this tab: #SYSSETTAB501).
  • Fee on 1 months rent will base the fee amount on 1 months rent, instead of the full balance owing for the Customer Agreement. For multi-period billing plans, the charge will be based on 1 months rent.
  • Charge is per Berth / Charge is per Unit / Charge is per Vault will charge one of these amounts for each Berth / Unit / Vault that the Customer has.
  • Analysis Code to assign to this fee lets you select the Analysis Code that the aforementioned fee should be associated with.

Invoicing fee...

  • Fee to charge Customers for posting Invoices lets you enter the amount to bill Customers if their invoice is printed & posted (mailed), as opposed to emailed.
  • Analysis Code to assign to invoicing fee lets you select the Analysis Code that the invoicing fee should be associated with.

  • Previous and Next are used to cycle between Notices.
  • Print Notice will print the text for the letter-based version of the Notice; as setup on Tab 2 (more on this tab: #NTCTAB201). Note: If you do not have any text entered for the letter version of this Notice (ie: the version of this Notice that prints - as opposed to email or TXT), then a blank page will print.
