Project Pulse has powerful financial capabilities for revenue forecasting and revenue recognition (reporting). Some of our customers like to include indirect costs such as employee benefits or overhead as a percentage of labor costs in their financial calculations. When creating your projects, set the value of the Indirect Cost Rate field value to account for indirect costs. The default value is 1.0 If your indirect costs average 15%, then set this value to 1.15
The effect of doing so will be to increase your labor cost calculations by this percentage, which makes the net revenue calculation more accurate.
