How to Generate a Statement of Fees and Invoice / CAN

Generating an Invoice or Commonwealth Assistance Notice is achieved using the uReport feature.  It uses Invoice or Commonwealth Assistance Notice template documents to format and input required Invoice or CAN.

If this is the first time your company is generating Invoices or CANs we recommend to first test the process using our generic templates. Then once confident with the process you can create you custom templates for live situations.

Before you begin:

Required Knowledge: Invoice / CAN | uReport


Prepare Course Enrolments

Note: If you already have your Course Enrolments set up, go to Step 2.

An Invoice / CAN will only generate when a Course Enrolment exists with:

  • Course Enrolment Accessed Vet Fee Help = True
  • Course Enrolment belongs to a Course with Fee Help Eligibility = “Vet Fee Help Eligible” or “Fee Help Eligibility”

It is important to have all appropriate fields set up against the Learner and Course Enrolment. Particularly Units of Study.

Note:  For the purpose of testing you could create a dummy Course Offer and Enrolments.

Generate Statement of Covered Fees or Invoice / CAN

Overnight automation is the best way to generate your Invoices / Commonwealth Assistance Notices as it allows you to configure once and let Wisenet do the work.

  • Before you configure automation it is important that you have confidence with your templates. You should test this by generating an Invoice / Commonwealth Assistance Notice from a Course Enrolment Logbook.
  • The Template Type that should be used is Automated CAN which is designed specifically to meet the per census date reporting requirements.

VET Student Loan Statement of Covered Fees needs to be generated once and is not a part of overnight automation.

VET Student Loan Statement of Covered Fees is only sent once at the beginning of VSL enrolment. It can be sent at the same time of first Fee Notice. However, it is not part of overnight automation.

You can generate individually or in bulk.

uReport Troubleshooting Guide


Review the generated Invoice / CAN

This step is more important during initial testing. Once you setup automation the Invoices / CANs will be automatically sent out.

Download the generated Invoice / CAN, review contents and make necessary changes:

  • If fields are incorrectly populated
    • Ensure that the data has been correctly entered into Wisenet for this Learner
    • Ensure the custom ureport template is referencing the correct regions or fields
  • If layout and formatting is not correct
    • The custom ureport template will need to be updated to resolve any issues

If this is a generic template then take a copy and create a custom template.

In any case if you require changes to a template follow the instructions on How to Create a Custom Invoice / CAN Template
