Within CounselGO, a biller can invoice for several different line item types, including Flat Fees.
Non-LEDES PDF Invoices
When selecting the line item type, make sure to select Flat Fee from the drop-down menu.
Next, input the units. Since this is for a flat fee line item type, input "1" as the Units and then input the total amount for Cost.
For submitting a flat fee in LEDES invoices, assign the code "IF" to the field/column EXP/FEE/INV_ADJ_TYPE. This indicates an invoice level adjustment on fees, and in this case, a flat fee.
For LINE_ITEM_NUMBER_OF_UNITS, this will be "1" in most, if not all, cases.
For LINE_ITEM_UNIT_COST, this will be the flat fee amount. For example, a total of $2000.
LINE_ITEM_TOTAL amount should automatically be calculated; it is the LINE_ITEM_NUMBER_OF_UNITS multiplied by LINE_ITEM_UNIT_COST, or 1 x $2000 in the above example.
Then add an appropriate LINE_ITEM_DESCRIPTION that is indicative of the flat fee.
