Time Sheet


For service-based businesses, you may now record the time and expenses spent on customers and then invoice accordingly.  This enables you to better manage the productivity of collaborative team work and track the profitability associated with each customer.

Time Sheet

The key feature which has been introduced in Time and expense module is time sheet. For a business you may have different staff. Depending on the higher key of the staffs the charge out rates and the time can differ from other staffs. For e.g. for a director of the audit firm the charge rate would be higher than the book keeping entry staffs. If the charges of the audit director are 100 euro per hours it may differ from the audit staff. So for every staff you can enter different charge rates.
