Using Equipment Billing Rates
Assign Equipment Billing Rates in each Equipment
account. The Billing Rate field determines what is charged when the equipment item is used for time and materials billing.
The Job Cost Rate field
determines the internal charge for use of this equipment when it is used on projects.
If the selected billing rate uses a Variable Rate calculation method, you can enter the specific billing rate that is used for that equipment account.
When you create an Equipment Hours transaction, the rates from the equipment account are entered automatically. You can change
either of the billing rates, if a different rate will be used for this transaction.
