  1. Payroll Options

    Would like to see a payroll service implemented; Maybe not a true payroll but at least the ability of tracking payments to employees without making them a vendor.

    • Profit report by project

      As time entries are linked to projects, invoices, expenses and bills should also be assigned to projects. That way a profit report by project could would also be possible.

        • Asset register

          Need an asset register to hold all assets that can be depreciated and accommodate depreciation calculation as well. This would Zoho Books on a par with the more well know competitors.

            • Option to record Bank charges is required while recording the payment of the Bill:

              Record the payment from customer: when we select the invoice to record the payment, the option to record bank charges is available but when we record the payment of the bill there is no option to record bank charges.

                There needs to be a option to round of on all bills. Simple feature that can save a lot of headache!

                      • Add a Tax field & include exclude tax field to bulk expense entry screen

                        Can we please have a Tax field and a tax included / excluded tick box in the bulk expenses entry screen. This will enable a tax to be selected at entry and eliminate the need to edit the records to add the tax.

                          • Manual entry of tax amount for expenses

                            In Australia, some expenses are not taxed at the full GST rate, especially when dealing with government departments. For instance, I just purchased an online file for a total cost of $13.26 (incl GST) yet the total GST that I paid was only $0.46 which is nowhere near the standard 10% GST.

                            I"d suggest that where the radio buttons are to nominate whether the expense amount is inclusive or exclusive of GST (tax) that an additional option be included somehow to manually enter an actual GST amount paid as part of the expense.

                            Without this it is impossible to correctly…

                                • Bills - Expected Payment Date

                                  When you have generated an Invoice for a client, you then have the option to apply the 'expected payment date'

                                  It would be great we had the same things for BILLS: reminders and expected payment date for BILLS that we generate.

                                  Making managing bills easier and better timely payments when required.

                                    • Show credit terms for various vendors and integrate it into when bills are due.

                                      Ideally, you would be able to set terms for a vendor. When a Purchase Order is created for a given vendor, it will notify you of how long you have to pay it.

                                      • Allow VAT value in bills to be set as a figure and not just a percentage value

                                        We need to be able to define a value for VAT in bills, or override a value, or even create a VAT item that will be 100% VAT and not just set VAT as a percentage of an item as is the only option currently in books. We import products into the EU and therefore receive VAT duty invoices from our shippers where the majority of the value of the invoice is VAT and the figure varies from invoice to invoice and is not associated with the cost of an item.
