Override job role billing rates at the company level

When a job role is created, you have the option to select an hourly billing rate for that role. You can create multiple hourly billing rates that are specific to a company. Each billing rate is effective for a specific date range.

At the project level, you can enable an option to allow company-level billing rates to override project-level rates. For more information, see Override Project-Level Billing Rates with Company-Level Billing Rates.

  9. (Conditional) If you are adding more than one billing rate, enter the following information:

    • Billing Rates 1, 2, etc.: The value of the billing rate for the time period.

    • Start Date: The date when the rate becomes effective.

    • End Date: The date when the rate ends.

      Billing Rate 1 will not have a start date and the last billing rate will not have an end date. Some dates are added automatically. For example, if Billing Rate 1 does not have an end date, and you add Billing Rate 2 with a start date of May 1, 2023, an end date of April 30, 2023 is added to Billing Rate 1 so that no gaps exist.

  10. Click Save.
