  • Clio Manage

Additional Information:

Clio does not differentiate between new and old Bills when Trust Funds are available or added regardless of when. So the procedure to pay an old Bill with recently added Trust Funds is treated exactly the same as if it was a newly generated Invoice.


  1. Open the Bill 
  2. Select Record Payment 
  3. Change the Source to Trust (Matter) or Trust (Client)
  4. Enter the amount you would like to pay in the Payment field 
  5. Select Record Payment 


  1. Open the Bill 
  2. Click More Actions
  3. Click Apply Trust
