Different Costs Centres or Costs by Project

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Varying staff cost by project

We are a consulting firm, we have full time, part time, contractors and associates that work with us.

Let's think of a Scenario:
John, who is an associate with a payment agreement that says that he will receive 40% of the Revenue we sell his services. Therefore if we sell a service with a $1,000/day Revenue he will Receive $400/day (which reflects being my COSTS) 
If we sell his services at $2,000/day his costs for us now is equal to $800/day

With that said, how is it possible for me to manage his costs within Replicon and different projects
if I have only 1 cost rate available per user?

The current cost settings work great with Full-time/Part-time staff where the salaried costs are "always" the same throughout the year/projects, however, if you have an associate with a different cost arrangement like mentioned above, it makes impossible to work with Replicon as a SaaS.

Any thoughts? How come a project management tool like Replicon doesn't have costs centre?

Any help will be much appreciated

Hi Thiago,

In every user profile, you have an option to add costs based on the effective dates. Are you referring to the same product area. Please do let me know if my understanding differs your issue description.

Thanks,

I know about the costs dates. But what happens when you have the same consultant working in 2 different projects with 2 different costs?

We already use the cost dates to when we have salary increase or when costs need to go up for any other reason.
