What is the difference between a monthly statement report and a monthly data report?
There are two types of selections that can be made:
Month/Year statements: Includes all charges and credits that were incurred on a statement that was run on any bill cycle during that month. Charges may include pre-billing for future months or charges for overage on previous months.
Month/Year data: Includes charges and credits that were actually incurred on any calendar day of the selected month, regardless of bill cycle. This option can therefore include data from bills produced in more than one TELUS Bill Cycle. (Tip: if you are requesting a recurring report, you will want to select the previous month's bills).
Why are some charges or adjustments for wireline services shown in «previous charges» in Bill Analyzer, while they are shown in «current charges» on the PDF bill?
Bill Analyzer will reconcile to the print bill. You may notice however that some tax adjustments, adjustments, balances transferred in and out, and payments will occur within ‘current charges’ in Bill Analyzer as opposed to ‘previous charges’. We will continue to investigate enhancements to presentation but please be assured that the data is accurate and reconciles – it just presents differently.
Why don’t my wireless taxes reconcile perfectly within the bill?
Within our wireless source data, the TELUS systems suppress taxes in detailed reporting where the charge is less than $2.00 and the tax detail table rounds slightly differently than the tax summary detail. This may result in tax charges with rounding errors in Bill Analyzer. We will continue to investigate enhancements regarding this reconciliation but please be assured that the Statement Summary and Total Balance Due are correct.
