The three main pillars of your Billing setup - create flexible schedules that parents can pay off items as they please.
We invite you to pay voluntary contributions to help our school provide the best education for your student/s.
Option 1: Amount chosen
Option 2: Payment Plan instalments available on [insert your payment plan dates and percentages here]
Option 3: Custom payment plan upon request and approval with the Business Manager. Families are invited to complete their payment on Compass and select the ‘Payment Plan’ payment option, then contact the Business Manager to organise individual payment arrangements.
Your Billing Run is similar to your Academic Year - your Billing Schedules are assigned to a Run. We suggest having the one run for 2022, including your intro description, and parents will see this as their School Fees option.
Item Templates can be used year to year, as a starting point for your payment items. Assign each template a name, cost, GL code and fee type - then you can use these within your Schedules.
Billing Schedules are like your Course Confirmations templates - they hold both payment items and enrolments. For example, you could have your Year 7 Contributions as a Schedule, with the Year 7 payment items & students.
When you've posted out your Billing Schedules - you can start using reports to keep track of and receipt your payments.DOWNLOAD FAQ GUIDE
All transactions will be processed through CompassPay as normal, so you're welcome to access reports and transfer batches through your CPay portal.
You'll have the option to receipt these payments back to families, or through GL Codes.
On top of using your CompassPay Reports, Billing is able to narrow down to report on the takings from each GL Code & Payment Items.
Use the Reports tab within the Billing Management Module to find your insights.

“Compass has been profoundly transformative in the way we manage and communicate around critical issues and processes like student wellbeing and parent communications, and the ways in which we shape student culture”
“Compass is absolutely central to how our school operates, it’s hard to remember what things were like before it.”
“Introducing Compass has been overwhelmingly positive in helping us streamline our student record keeping, taking us to that next level as a school.”
