You work with placements and you want to change the rate in a placement. However, you can't change the rate. This article explains how you can work with a different rate. 

Background

Once a rate is used in an invoice line, the rate is locked. It is accountancy undesirable that you can change the rates afterwards. 

Method

If you want to add a modification afterwards (for example when the rate was to low) then to the following:

  1. Go to Files | Placements
  2. Open the 'Placement';
  3. Give the rate line an end date.
  4. Click [Rate +1] to add a new rate line. 
  5. Fill in the fields and make sure that the start date is just after the end date you set for the old rate. 
  6. Click [Save] here is an example of how the new rate lines could look like
    "Wrong" rate| 100 | 01-01-2013 | 13-01-2013
    "New" rate | 115 | 14-01-2013 | [empty]

This way the right rate is set for the following invoices. To make up for the differences in the past, create a new invoice line at the placement.
