Internal Billings

Internal billings are necessary when a University department has provided goods or services and now wishes to "bill" for those goods or services. Ohio University, Ohio University Foundation, Subsidiary, Rebill accounts and/or Student Organizations cost centers may be charged.

The object codes to be used on the Internal Billing will always be paired Internal Charge Object codes using 78XXXX as the debit object code and 48XXXX as the credit object code. Please see the Internal Charge Quick Reference Guide for more information.
