Thank you for reaching out to the Community. We can modify the billable rates for an existing employee in QuickBooks. I'll show you how:
However, if you're unable to edit the billable rate, I suggest using a private window to ensure this is not related to a browser issue. There are times that the browser stores frequently-accessed data, thus causing some errors or unusual behavior.
Let's try logging in to your QuickBooks Online account using a private or a different browser. Here's how:
Once logged in, and able to change the billable rate. You need to clear the cache of the regular browser you're using. You can also do this task on other supported, up-to-date browsers. Clearing the cache will refresh the system, and you'll be able to work with clean trash.

Thanks you for your prompt response.
I realise the billable rate can be edited in the project reporting but it is a bit tedious to be altering each line...and a never-ending job if your employees work on different projects each day. We have the issue where a daily rate has been input for some employees at set up, rendering the project reporting meaningless. Since we can input a rate for new employees, is there nowhere we can simply an employees existing billable rate?
Some businesses will use a different rate per employee for each project (and we bill on a daily rate, fractional if necessary) but surely there is a way to edit the billable rate per employee as we set it up for each employee (correctly now!)?
Consider this as feedback if there is no solution (we currently export the reports into excel and rework them...) and thank you again for your assistance.
I appreciate you getting back to us, dltx.

I'll be sharing with you this article: Payroll 101. It contains more information about the different types of compensation as well as on what are the types of federal forms you need to file. Also, this will provide you a sample breakdown of a paycheck.

Hello there, @blergh. Thanks for joining the thread.
Once you've set up an hourly cost rate for your employees from the Project page, the rate will show when you start to track time. From there, you can edit the Cost rate (/hr) and enter the Billable (/hr) amount.
To ensure the information will show on the Project, ensure to select the Customer/project name and enter other necessary information.
To know more about using the Project feature, see this article: Track hourly labor costs and profitability by project in QuickBooks Online.
