Billing document types for booked services via Lanes & Planes - Customers on collective invoice

When booking travel services via Lanes & Planes, we make a distinction between different billing document types, which are explained below:

1. Performance Listing (L) & Collective invoice

A Performance Listing is comparable to an invoice. However, you cannot post this statement in your financial accounting. For this, the collective invoice is mandatory. You will receive this automatically twice per week. The collective invoice is cut by period, i.e. the booked services are summarized on the collective invoice for each service month. 

You will find each Performance Listing in the accounting overview, which you can then compare with your collective invoice.

Example: DB services

2. Payment note (Z) & Collective payment slip

Payment notes are issued to you together with an attached document from the operator or service provider, e.g. a passenger receipt or a hotel invoice. In this case the passenger receipt or hotel invoice can be used for VAT deduction. 
Even if you do not receive an invoice from Lanes & Planes, we will still be your creditor, because the payment will be made to us and debited from your account by direct debit.
Twice a week, you will automatically receive the collective payment slip with a list of all Z-documents generated since the last payment run.

Example: Services from Eurowings, Hotel bookings, Airbnb invoices


This can also be compared to the expense of an employee, where e.g. a taxi bill is submitted. Here, the expense is booked against the employee as a creditor, although the cab company issued the invoice. In the end, the employee receives the reimbursement and not the taxi company.


Accounting overview

All these document types can be downloaded in the accounting overview and have the following document names:
