How do I tick the "billable" box on a supplier bill (Reckon Accounts Hosted).  Do I need to turn on this function somewhere to allow the box to be ticked?

    Hi Michelle

     

    Once you enter/select the applicable “Customer:Job” on each line, the “Billable” box will appear for you to tick  :)

    Thanks Shaz!  I've tried to do this, but the 'billable" box is being bypassed & I'm unable to tick it!  I've tried but I can't work out why! 
    Do you know if there's any settings I need to change to allow me to tick that box?
    Thanks, Michelle.

    No, you shouldn’t need to change any settings.

    What account (eg expense) or item type (eg service) are you trying to make billable?

    The COGS account.  I just tried a couple of Expense accounts, and I'm able to tick the box for these....just not the COGS!  Do you know why?  Thanks Shaz  :)

    Aha – Yes ... this account is not “Billable” because Reckon automatically adjusts your COGS based on your Purchases v Sales.

     

    The purpose of the “Billable” feature is too track on-charges to a Customer for specific (reimbursable) expenses – eg Time, Mileage, Items or Expenses.

    Further to Shaz's explanation - create an expense account for what you want to use (I often use Other Expense accounts, and then make sure these go back to zero before year end).... the COGS accounts are not able to be billable for the reasons outlined above.

    Aaah.  I understand what the problem is.  Because the "Cost of Goods Sold" account is usually used in relation to goods held in inventory, it cannot be ticked as "billable" on a supplier bill. 
    I'm using the COGS account to record materials purchased for jobs, so I will probably need to change it to an "Expense" account to allow it to be billable.
    Problem sorted!  Thanks so much for your help Shaz!  :)
