Invoice Surcharges Add-on

If you’re looking for an easy way to add surcharges to invoices, this new add-on is a great time-saver. 

The Invoice Surcharges Add-on makes it possible to create different surcharges with percentage and/or fixed amounts. These surcharges can be added to your invoices by simply selecting them from a drop-down menu.

How it works

The Invoice Surcharge Add-on can be enabled on the Integrations & Add-Ons page in your Teachworks account. Once you’ve enabled the add-on, you can add as many surcharges as you require. 

For each surcharge, you can to complete the following fields:

  • Name: This appears in the menu for selecting a surcharge on invoices. If you’ll be adding various surcharges, be sure to make this as descriptive as possible to avoid any confusion.
  • Label: This label will appear on your invoices, so make sure that it’s descriptive as well to limit any confusion from your clients.
  • Fixed Amount: If you would like to add a fixed amount to invoices, you can complete this field. 
  • Percentage: If you would like to add a surcharge that is a percentage of the invoice total, you can complete this field.
  • Note: In some cases you may want to add a fixed amount and a percentage to invoices. In this case, you can complete the field for both.
