How to add a 50% overhead on to an Invoice

Good day, agriculturalfarm.


Let me show you how to track and add overhead to an invoice.


Overhead is still the expense of running a business. We can record it as a billable expense so we can add it to an invoice. Please follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Gear icon and select Account and Settings.
  2. From the Expenses tab, select the Bills and expenses section.
  3. Turn on the following:
    • Show Items table on expense and purchase forms
    • Track expenses and items by customer
    • Make expenses and items billable
  4. Select Save.

Once done, proceed in entering a billable expense. Please check the detailed steps in this article: Enter billable expenses.


In addition, it's best to reach out to an accountant on how to properly track and record overhead costs. Please check this article for additional details: How To Calculate And Track Overhead Costs.


Post again here if you have more questions. Wishing you all the best!
