What are Billable Hours?

Billable hours are the hours employees spend working on asks directly related to a client project. These hours are typically tracked and billed to the client at a pre-agreed rate.

Employees must record their time on each project task for accurate billable hours. Some tasks are billable, while others are not.

For example, sending emails, making phone calls, and attending meetings are typically not billable. However, research, writing, development, and design tasks generally are billable.

How does it work?

Administrators must specify which tasks are billable and which are not when creating them in the system. This allows employees to easily fill out their timesheets and know whether their work hours are billable or not.
