What are Standard Fees and Credits?
The Food Corridor helps you keep fees and credits organized and automated to handle all kitchen occurrences. You can add recurring fees and credits, as well as one-time fees and credits to clients’ accounts.
You can assign fees and credits to your clients based on your kitchen policies.
Recurring fees: These are fees that you want to charge on a recurring basis, whether it's monthly, quarterly, yearly, etc. Any charge that's not related to time in the kitchen or storage can be added as a fee. Recurring fees are applied to your clients' bills and charged on the kitchen's monthly billing date per the recurring nature of the fee (e.g., monthly, yearly, etc.) until the fee is removed.
Common recurring fees: ongoing services, parking, cleaning, annual/monthly fees that you charge, etc.
One-time fees: These are fees that you want to charge for one-off situations, such as deposits, key replacements, delivery signing, consulting, storage violations, cleaning violations, late payment fees, events, etc. When you assign a one-time fee to a client, you can choose if you'd like the fee to be charged on the spot, on a future date, or added to a client's monthly bill.
Common one-time fees: Application fees, security deposits, key replacements, delivery signing, consulting, storage violations, cleaning violations, late payment fees, events, etc.
Credits: Recurring and one-time credits are helpful for giving a recurring discount to a client, or for those one-off occurrences. When assigning a one-item credit to a client, you can choose if you'd like the credit to be applied instantly or applied to a client's monthly bill. If you make a mistake and would like to zero out their credit balance, please see here.
