Leeching invoices build the invoice throughout the invoice period, "Leeching" in all Sale Orders, Purchase Orders, Consignments, Manifests and Storage charges. Rather than the invoice being created at the end of the invoice period, a Leeching Invoice will be created at the start of the invoice period and continue to grow until the end of the invoice period.
The major benefit of Leeching invoices is that you are able to resolve charge errors as they appear throughout the week rather than having to deal with all errors at once at the end of the invoice period.
