Which Desktop versions provide Billing Rate Levels support

Which Desktop versions provide Billing Rate Levels support? I am currently using Desktop Pro and don't see and option to add billing rates for employees. I found this article:

 

https://quickbooks.intuit.com/community/Help-Articles/Set-up-custom-rates-or-prices-for-employees-ve...

 

It mentions Billing Rate Levels are only available in the Contractor, Professional Services, and Accountant editions. I only see Quickbooks Pro, Premier, and Enterprise available on the QB website.  What am I missing? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

How can I access Billing Rate Levels in Quickbooks Premier 2019?

Greetings, @MattO.

 

Thanks for taking the time to visit the Community. There are just a few steps to access the billing rate levels in QuickBooks Premier 2019, and I'd be happy to show you how:

  1. Go to the Lists menu. 
  2. Select Billing Rate Level List

From there, you can create and edit your billing rate levels. For more reference, you can use the following article about this feature, as well as how to create and assign them to your employees and vendors: Set up custom rates or prices for employees, vendors, or customers.

 

Once you associate them with employees and vendors, each time you create an invoice with billable time, QuickBooks automatically fills in the correct rate for each service item.

 

Please feel free to comment below if you have any other questions. I'll be here to help.

There isn't a Billing Rate Level List under Lists in my version.

Is it possible to do Billing Rate Levels in Quickbooks Desktop 2019 Premier?

Is there another way?

Thanks for getting back to the Community, @MattO.

 

Allow me to step in and help ensure you're able to access the Billing Rate Level List on your QuickBooks Desktop 2019 Premier version. 

 

All QuickBooks versions provide Billing Rate Levels support except QuickBooks Pro. In this case, possible that you're set to access some selected areas in QuickBooks. 

 

You can contact your QuickBooks administrator so you can ask a permission to give you a full access in QuickBooks. 

 

For additional reference, you can check this article to learn more about QuickBooks Desktop Users and Restrictions

 

However, if you're the QuickBooks admin and you don't have the Billing Rate Level List option, let's perform some troubleshooting steps to resolve the issue. You'll need to rebuild and verify the data in QuickBooks Desktop to remove the empty or damaged information from the file. 

 

Here's how to rebuild the data: 

  1. At the top menu bar, click File.
  2. Select Utilities, and choose Rebuild Data.
  3. Click OK if you receive a prompt to backup your company file. Your computer may display the message QuickBooks is not responding. However, as long as you can see your mouse cursor to move, Rebuild is still ongoing. Wait for it to complete.
  4. Click OK when you get the message Rebuild has completed and process the next troubleshooting steps.

To verify the data in QuickBooks, you can follow the steps in this article: Verify and Rebuild Data in QuickBooks Desktop

 

Please let me know how it goes by adding a comment below. I'll be around to help if you have additional concerns about the Billing Rate Level List.

From the Homepage > List menu on top > Select Billing Rate Level List.

To Add New, select "Billing Rate Level" at the bottom and select New. Or just right-click on list screen and select New.

QB List.PNG So I followed the instructions and successfully rebuilt the data.  I am the Quickbooks admin.  However, there is still no option for Billing Rate Level under Lists.  Is Billing Rate Level really supported with Quickbooks Premier Edition 2019, or is it only for Quickbooks Accountant?  And if it is supported, how can I use it?

I have a customer with Enterprise 20 and does not have access to that either?  If you change the license like you state above that changes all the company files to the new industry then correct?  My customer has 25 company files and just started a contractor/construction company which is completely opposite of all the other company files.. If i change the license that will change the industry to all those other company files too correct?

I can share some information about QuickBooks editions works, MJN.

 

Please know that the Billing Rate Level feature is only available in the Contractor, Professional Services, and Accountant editions. It's possible your customer isn't using these editions that why he/she's unable to view the Billing Rate Level List option. 

 

Additionally, you don't have to change your license to change the industry type/edition. When you shift to another edition, only the company you're currently working on will be affected by the changes. The industry of the other company file will still remain the same.

 

When you're ready, here's how to toggle QuickBooks Desktop Premier or Enterprise Solutions to another edition:

 

  1. Go to the Help menu.
  2. Choose Manage My License.
  3. Click Change to a Different Industry Edition.
  4. Choose the appropriate edition.

Follow these steps if you're using QuickBooks Premier or Enterprise Accountant:
 

  1. Go to the File menu.
  2. select Toggle to Another Edition.
  3. Choose the appropriate edition, then click Next. 
  4. Select Toggle.

Once done, QuickBooks will take a few moments to configure and will re-launch in the selected version.
