Each charge for every client can be entered separately, or you can combine all charges for each client, but you must have a separate distribution line for each client in order to select the appropriate options.
Note: These amounts do not feed into Project Worksheets or Profit Analysis reports.
BE SURE TO POST THE REIMBURSABLE BEFORE POSTING THE EXPENSE. ONCE THE DISBURSEMENT HAS BEEN POSTED, YOU WILL NO LONGER BE ABLE TO POST THE REIMBURSABLE.
Once the reimbursable entries have been posted, they can no longer be edited from Money Out. You can view and edit the reimbursable piece of the entry from within Activities.
