Streamlined client billing

Future Payments can help your firm streamline client billing for foreign associates and vendors invoices. Manage exchange rate fluctuations by securing a fixed exchange rate for up to 8 months and billing clients a fixed AUD cost. This helps you forecast future expenses in AUD, and minimise the need to re-bill clients or absorb costs due to exchange rate fluctuations.

It’s important to note, when you enter a Future Payment you are locking in a fixed rate for the invoice and will be required to pay in full, even if the market moves in your favour.
