Invoice sub-types provide a method of further categorizing the main types of Invoices. These sub-types can be set as the default for each invoice type globally or on a terminal basis. The use of sub-types in System Five adds a layer of complexity that may not be required in your business.

It is strongly recommended that only use the invoice sub-types if you require this advanced feature. In some industries, the need to determine the source of a specific invoice type is a requirement, therefore, each terminal can be set up via the Invoice Tree to use a specific sub-type for each of the invoice types. The invoice sub-type can then be used to report on all invoices created by a specific terminal. This is only an example of the power of the sub-type feature.
