Expenses on a project show a 20% markup by default.
This can happen if you have assigned a fee schedule to the project and that specifies a 20% markup for all expenses of all employees.
To prevent this, you should remove the line in the fee schedule that specifies the markup. To do so, follow these steps:
- Open the Projects > General > Billing Options tab and check the fee schedule assigned to the project.
- Now go to the Fee Schedules screen and open the detail view of the fee schedule in question.
- Under the Expenses tab, check for a line that says All Employees under Resource, All Expenses under Expense and 20% under Markup(%), and delete it.
The new expense entries for the project no longer show the 20% markup. If you also want to remove the markup from existing expense entries, use the Batch Update option on Markup in the Expense Entries screen and change it to zero.
