Preliminary Billing Documents serve as an intermediary reference billing document before creating the final billing document. It is similar to a standard billing document and it is mostly used for negotiation before final settlement.
We also have a scheduling app available for creating and finalizing preliminary billing documents. This app will allow you to schedule the creation process for several preliminary documents in the background.
