Burdening and Capitalization

Accepted answer

I have a requirement to burden on a separate line item on same project and also capitalize raw cost + burden cost. The only way I have found to achieve this is in project type:

  1. Select the checkbox for Create Separate Expenditure Item for Burden Cost
  2. Do not select the checkbox for Create Burden Cost Accounting Journal Entries
  3. Select the checkbox for Create Burdened Cost Accounting Journal Entries
  4. Capitalize Burdened Costs Amounts

This works fine as my capital cost is the full amount inclusive of the burden. The only thing I do not really like about this setup is that the raw cost journal creates what I deem an unnecessary entry dr/cr for raw amounts and dr/cr for burdened amounts. I am able to get around this by making the debit/credit entry on one set the same accounts, so I beleive I have a solution.

Howdy, Stranger!
