Add Financial Information to zlien

Getting Started


Whenever you set up a project in zlien, you have the option to add financial information on the project level to help you exchange documents with the right amounts and make better decisions about which documents to file.


Add Accounts Receivable info to zlien to track the amount outstanding on each job. If you work as a subcontractor or supplier in Texas, Louisiana, Tennessee, or New Hampshire, zlien uses the dates of your unpaid invoices to calculate required notice deadlines to secure lien rights. If you are working in one of these 4 states, it is especially important to keep you A/R information updated in zlien.

Click the +Add Invoice button under the A/R tab of zlien to manually enter an invoice. The Amount Due on the job will update to be the sum total of your unpaid invoices.

Add Accounts Payable info to zlien to request and track lien waivers based on payments to vendors. You can generate lien waiver requests based on your A/P invoices and track what you’ve collected back.

Click the +Add Bill button under the A/P tab of zlien to manually enter an invoice. You’ll be prompted to associate the A/P invoice with a contact on your project. If your vendor isn’t added as a contact yet, you can click +Add New Contact and add them while you create the invoice.
