Bill To

Bill to allows you to assign payees to a list and to then to assign accounts to payees. At check out you can combine all the accounts assigned to a payee into one bill. Each show can have a list assigned to it and the same list can be assigned to several shows. This allows you apply balances from other than the show you currently have open which is extremely useful if you're doing a series of shows.

The entire reason for creating a list here is so that it can potentially be associated with more than one show if your doing back to back shows where a payee may be paying accounts in more than one show.
