Procore's Progress Claim Management product includes the Project level Invoicing tool, which supports two types of progress claims on a construction project:

  • Subcontractor Progress Claims
    In construction accounting, accounts payable (A/P) refers to the bills received from your downstream collaborators. From the perspective of a Procore company account holder, these are the subcontractor progress claims created in the project's Commitments tool that bill against your project's purchase orders and subcontracts
  • Head Contract Progress Claim
    In construction accounting, accounts receivable (A/R) are the bills sent to upstream collaborators for payment. From the perspective of a Procore company account holder, these are your head contract progress claim. Head contract progress claim are created in the project's Head Contracts tool and you send them to your upstream collaborator(s) as bills for the work you perform on your project's head contracts. Procore can also expedite the payment process, by automatically generating your owner progress claim(s) and completing them with amounts from your 'Approved' subcontractor progress claims.
