Disbursements / On-charging / Billable expenses

Started by Thomas Bombotas -   in Feature Requests | Started

Hi, my client has migrated across from quickbooks. In quickbooks when processing an expense he was able to assign it as a disbursement to a specific client. When he then went in to raise an invoice to the client he was able to see the related disbursement and choose to add that to the invoice. Is there any way to do this in Xero?

Thanks again for the great feedback. We know that it’s an important feature for you here, and I’m happy to say that the team is making good progress with development.

You’ll be able to mark costs as ‘to be oncharged’ to a contact from a Bill or Spend Money transaction. Then, you’ll be given a prompt on the Sales Invoice, and the option to copy those lines from the Bill to the invoice.

We will of course have reporting to show outstanding items to oncharge and history of what has been oncharged. In the initial release, you’ll be able to add any mark-up manually on your Sales Invoice, and in the future we can look into improving this - depending on feedback.

Once some of the specifics have been worked out, we’ll be able to give you a sneak preview of what you’ll be able to expect, and a timeframe for delivery.
