Linking an Existing Laytime Calculation to a Task

To link an existing Claim to a Demurrage Time Bar Task, open a Claim and then save it.

You can track multiple laytime claims linked to a specific Demurrage Time Bar Task for non-FOB and FOB voyage types in Linked Claims on the Demurrage Time Bar Task list and form. To see the latest calculation, check the Calculation/Claim field of the Demurrage Time Bar Task.

Note: Tracking multiple laytime claims requires database schema 29.0 or higher.

Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivable Laytime Claims

Accounts Payable (AP) and Accounts Receivable (AR) laytime claims are automatically linked to the corresponding Demurrage Time Bar Task. A single Demurrage Time Bar Task can be relevant to both an AR and an AP claim if the Claim ID and Original Claim ID fields in the list are related.

Whenever a new Demurrage Time Bar Task is generated or an existing one is updated, its linking to existing claims for the task's type (AP/AR), its counterparty (charterer/receiver/shipper/owner), and its voyage port (if laytime claim is issued to a specific port) will also be updated. If multiple claims exist, the task's claim linking is updated using the latest claim. 

Completing a Task

To complete a task, change its Time Bar Status to Claim SentClaim ReceivedNo DemurrageInternal, or Time Bar.
