Price model: Hourly rates
The price model Hourly rate is used if you are invoicing according to elapsed time. Here comes a closer description of the different choices.
Hourly rate base – Here you define which hourly rate that should be used for co-workers that do not have a specific price under Hourly rates per employee (see down below).
Here is an explanation of these settings:
Hourly rates specified for co-workers
Hourly rates specified for roles
Common hourly rate
Hourly rates specified for customer
Hourly rates specified in price list
Employee true cost specified for co-workers
Hourly wage specified for co-workers
Hourly rate must be specified per co-worker. No co-worker automatically gets set to an hourly rate on the project. Should the project mainly be priced on the individual workers, we recommend this choice. You are forced to consider the hourly rate per person per project, and the chance of co-workers automatically getting invoiced with wrong standard hourly rate is reduced.
Unless a specific hourly rate is defined for the co-worker under Hourly rate per employee, everybody who works on the project is set to the same hourly rate.
This setting allows for setting the hourly rate to be based on the employee true cost. The true cost can be set in the individual co-workers profile.
The hourly rate will be set equal to the hourly rate specified in the indivual co-worker's profile
If you are a pro customer and use the functionality for partner companies, you will have an extra setting this is called: Main project. What this setting does is that it uses the hourly rates from the external project as a basis for the hourly rate. This is specially useful in case the partner companies charge the same price.

The rest of the settings are explained below:
Estimated total fee
Appear in to be invoiced
Surcharges to fixed price/invoiced expenses
Price list for products
Here you can specify a possible total fee. An estimated total fee is the maximum fee that is invoiced on a project, even though the worked hours would exceed this fee
This setting allows to set the way in which the program will treat additional costs such as product sales and billable expenses, whether these will be added to the totals or not. Regarding billable expenses, these settings can be overruled in the individual expense. You can also click on the "information" icon to get more info.
You can add a surcharge to invoiced hours. The surcharge is added on an invoice line level. it’s like a discount, except it adds instead of subtracts. This is not a common function. We have a separate function for cost connected to administration work. This shows up at the end of the invoice as its own invoice line.
Here you can choose an avaiable price list for products. Price lists are created in setup > price lists > for products
New time records will be set as billable for the purpose of reporting and invoicing.
This allows the price model to show up as available for invoicing on its own.
Hourly rates in a price model can also be defined for different periods in the future, similar as they can be defined for each co-worker
