As LEED project consultants and owners gain experience creating invoices in LEED Online, GBCI Canada is seeing an increase in communications with client accounting departments requiring revisions to invoicing, causing delays. When creating invoices in LEED Online, consider the following:

  1. Ensure you are familiar with the accounting requirements of the company being billed. Once the invoice is generated, you will not have the ability to edit information.
  2. Ensure the Bill To party is correct. This should not be an individual’s name but rather the correct company name.
  3. Label your payment so it can be promptly applied to the project upon receipt by GBCI Canada. Cheques must include the invoice number. Wire transfers include little information and should be followed with a remittance or communication by email to

In the project profile in LEED Online, you can check to see that your project has been submitted by navigating to the Timeline tab. The stage of review, for example preliminary standard review, should indicate “Under review”. Payments received will be listed on the Payments tab as well.
