Contractors Certificate and Application for Payment

Construction Application for Payment Solution works with QuickBooks® to provide a complete AIA® billing solution for General Contractors, Sub-contractors, Builders, and Developers; to help you create Percentage of Completion contract billings on actual AIA® G702 & G703 documents that you purchase from AIA® or an authorized distributor of AIA Contract Documents® or similar plain paper forms, without time-consuming data entry. 


QuickBooks holds basic information about your customers and the job you are working on, Estimates(Scheduled Values), and Progress Invoices (current Accounts Receivable and Work Completed this period) information.  It can, also, track Retainage Payable and/or Retainage Receivable.  Construction Application for Payment Solution (CAPS) holds additional project information, architect information, retainage methods, percentage of completion calculations, and account for stored materials in liked records.  Information in both programs is then merged together to generate the final billings and documents-without time-consuming duplicate data entry.

When used in conjunction with QuickBooks, Sunburst Software Solutions, Inc.'s Construction Application for Payment Solution will broaden and enhance the QuickBooks end-user experience, as well as, their return on investment; allowing for timely delivery of complex billings and the generation of key Contract Documents. Construction Application for Payment Solution has proven to increase billing accuracy and reduce billing efforts up to 95%:  effectively turning hours of work into minutes.

In addition to accuracy, reliability and convenience; processing AIA® billings using QuickBooks and Construction Application for Payment Solution gives customers numerous benefits, including the ability to :
