When I enter a payment as a reimbursable expense and subsequently create an invoice from that expense, any quantity and unit-price information I included in the payment entry are lost, and only the total amount is carried over to the invoice (although in some cases, the unit-price information is displayed incorrectly on the printed invoice).
For example, my client reimburses me for business use of a personal automobile on a per-mile basis. Let’s say I drive 100 miles to visit my client’s office. I create a payment for 100 miles at the standard rate (unit price) of $0.575/mile, crediting
Cash and debiting
Reimbursable expenses $57.50:
Then I create a sales Invoice to the client from the billable expense:
The invoice that is generated shows only the $57.50. That is the correct amount, but the quantity and unit price information are not displayed on the invoice:
If I edit the invoice, I can see that the quantity field is now blank, and the unit price has been changed to the total amount (in this case, $0.575 has been changed to $57.50):
The quantity and unit price information still appear correctly in the billable expense and payment entries, but for some reason are not reflected on the invoice. Worse, if there are other items on the invoice that do have quantities, the entered quantity for the billable expense still does not display on the invoice, and the wrong unit price appears:
The desired behavior is that if I enter a quantity and unit price for a reimbursable expense, those values should appear correctly on the printed sales invoice.
