The “Rate Multiplier” can be adjusted in the “Rates” administrative tab only. All adjustments can be done under tab “Manual Adjustment Override”.
Click the pencil icon. Select the adjustment type as “Fixed Amount” or “Percent of Total”.
Under fixed amount you can add or subtract. These are total amounts and are not multiplied by the “Rate Multiplier” or the “Markup”.
Under “Percentage” enter the percent without a decimal. Be careful that the totals are adjusted in the order of the adjustments as they are entered. Test and check your results.
