  • Select the expenses to bill by marking the checkboxes in the list view
  • Click the Create Billings button on the list view to process the billings for the selected Expense Reports
If a markup needs to be applied to the expenses the markup will first need to be created on the individual Project:
  • Navigate to the Project record
  • Click the New Billing Rates button in the Billing Rates Related list
  • Populate the Expenses Markup field appropriately
NOTE - If the Revenue GL account is blank in the Create Billings intermediate screen this means there is no Time & Expense Conversion GL Account defined for the relevant Expense GL Account. The Time & Expense Conversion account maps the expense GL account to the revenue GL account used in the billings creation process. This mapping is part of the GL account setup. Please see the GL Accounts knowledge article located in the Master Data section for more information regarding this.
