New Cost Plus Owner Billing Template

Paskr is happy to announce that we have released a new Owner Billing template for Cost Plus jobs! The new template is designed specifically for projects where the Owner’s costs and the profit are frequently adjusted. When change orders are pulled into bills they will add and remove funds directly from the line items, giving you and the owner a clear view of where current costs stand.

The template also allows you to designate when costs have been directly paid by the owner and will not be paid to the GC. Designating items as Owner Paid also remove the funds from the remaining balance to keep your billing numbers clear and accurate.
