The Itemized Billing feature in Kangarootime shares the individual line items each account will pay for within each billing cycle. Billing cycles will have their own definitive beginning and end date in which the system will compile a list of all transactions and neatly display it on a bill for parental review and eventual payment. The Itemized bill will present the subtotal of current charges plus any rolling balance/debt that needs to be paid off. This article provides the steps to quickly access Itemized Bills, as well as an overview of the features and functionality of Itemized Bills.
