A miscellaneous charge is a cost that you want to pass on to a client that has not been raised as a timesheet or expense item. It is often a fixed amount charge that you have been billed for on a client’s behalf, or a one–off fee such as payment for registering a company. An example of a miscellaneous charge might be a standard cost associated with the commencement of an assignment.
A miscellaneous charge will not affect the WIP ledger, only the debtors ledger. While it increases the billable WIP total for the assignment, it will not increase the amount recorded as time and expenses. They display as a miscellaneous charge on reports.
