Submitting a Fixed Fee LEDES Invoice (for Vendors and Law Firms)

This article is for vendors and law firms. 

When submitting a fixed fee LEDES invoice to Brightflag, use the standard upload instructions and ensure the following file rules apply:

  1. Assign the code IF to the field/column EXP/FEE/INV_ADJ_TYPE. This indicates an invoice-level adjustment on fees and, in this case, a flat fee.
  2. Set LINE_ITEM_NUMBER_OF_UNITS to 1.
  3. Set LINE_ITEM_UNIT_COST to the flat fee amount. This auto-calculates the amount as LINE_ITEM_UNIT_COST multiplied by LINE_ITEM_NUMBER_OF_UNITS.
  4. Add a LINE_ITEM_DESCRIPTION to ensure you are aligned with client billing guidelines.
