Managing expense items
I provide professional services. Some invoice items I can easily add using the hour, day or specific service structure. However I recharge expenses (travel and accommodation for example). This item will vary on every invoice. At the moment I can create an Expense item and manually change the value. This is okay except that I have to enter the price inclusive of VAT which is annoying. Is this is the best way to handle this item? Other than the VAT issue having an unpriced item that forces a manual value to be entered would ensure I didn't accidentally send out an invoice with £1 as an expense.
Thank you for your feedback!
We are considering adding the option of prices exclusive of VAT. You can create that Expense item and mark it as VAT = 0 and therefore VAT won’t be calculated in this item.
Regarding the manual change of value, we don’t see any good alternative right now as the amount (e.g. travel and accommodation) will be different from one invoice to the other.

Unfortunately I have to charge VAT on expense items as they are an expense incurred in providing the service.
