LEDES XML Ebilling v2.1  *BETA

LEDES (Legal Electronic Data Exchange Standard) is a standardized ebilling format used in the legal industry for the electronic exchange of information. The LEDES XML v2.1 standard is an update to the LEDES 2000 ebilling format and is intended to be the future direction of the XML ebilling standard. Among other enhancements, the new standard restructures the manner in which taxes are handled, enhances the ability to bill alternate fee agreements, eliminates unused or non-mainstream ebilling data elements, and creates consistency in the use of terminology.

Bill4Time enables firms to generate their invoices in LEDES 1998b/i and XML format as a text file. This LEDES export fully supports UTBMS (Uniform Task Based Management System) codes. This streamlines data entry and ensures the format comports with the billing standard. The LEDES XML Ebilling Ver 2.1 format includes 191 data elements within 16 segments.
