Managing out-of-pocket expenses in Productive

Whenever you add an expense to a Productive budget, you can mark it as either billable or non-billable.


  • Will not be billed to the client

  • The revenue will stay the same

  • The expense will not show up in the invoice


  • Will be billed to the client

  • The revenue will also increase

  • The expense will show up on the invoice

Turn this on if you want to add this expense to your client's invoice.

Adding markup

Productive allows you to add your default markup when adding an expense – in this case, 5%.

All you have to do is add this 5 % and the billable amount is calculated automatically, saving you the trouble.
