My client uses the billable function to raise invoices rebilling costs that they have incurred on their behalf. Often their customer will pay them a deposit which we allocate to a payment in advance account on the balance sheet. I mark this as billable so when they raise the invoice it shows the customer's earlier deposit and only the remaining balance is requested on the invoice.
It would be great if the banking screen could include a tick box for billable on the deposit screen as it does for the expense transactions to prevent me having to go into each deposit after it is saved and tick the billable option there.
I appreciate you explaining how the billable tick box from the banking screen would help you out. While that feature isn’t currently in our development roadmap, we are working on big improvements that will be helpful for the majority of our customers.
