Report: Activity - Non- Chargeable Hours

I am looking for a report on MYOB that gives me the hours spent on a project when the project has non-chargeable hours included in the timesheets.  The current report doesn't include the project number or name when reporting on non-chargeable hours, this information is only displayed for the chargeable hours.


At the moment we have to go back through the timesheet and look for the project based on the dates the hours came up against.


Over 50% of our projects are on fixed lump sum fees so the number of hours spent are not directly billed.   To keep this seperate in MYOB we have been entering this time as non-chargeable so that the programme does not think it needs to bill a certain number of hours when it comes to invoicing.   We still need to assess the number of hours spent against the fixed fee so that we can see the profitability of the project since the primary expense of the business is employees hours.

I have not needed to do what you are saying above, so I can not speak first hand, but it seems like a reasonable request - i.e. "project costing 101".

Any update on this?

We need this for the same use - surely this is quite a standard request?


The reports always show the hours / employee for these non-chargeable activities, but the job name / no. is just hidden / not displayed...

I would definitely be interested in this report. I don't understand why the limitation is there in the first place. Why have an activity if you can't track it/report on it. Not all activities are billed out to customers. 


Any update or MYOB taking this issue seriously would be greatly appreciate.

Is there any update on this one, as I would like to see MYOB do the same thing?

Hi, is there any chance of MYOB ever making this report? It would be handy for my reporting as well.
