Labour Rate Types

If you want more control over different types and levels of labour, set up Labour Rates. You can have different levels of billing based on the type of job, or the location, or the client. Labour rates are defined separately from the jobs because you can have a single labour rate type that applies to many jobs. You’ll set up the rates for that specific labour rate type, and then reference that rate type for each job that uses it:
