Sometimes, in addition to the base fee of a license, you may have several optional fees. Things like an application fee (that wouldn’t apply to a renewal), an inspection fee, or impact fees may all fall into this category. Traditionally, our customers add this as a miscellaneous charge, but then it’s not linked to the business. Now with fees as a part of licensing, we can define those beforehand and add them when we’re processing!
During a new application, the fees appear as an option on the Charge screen. If the license type has fees available, you’ll see a fees section below the primary charge calculation:
