About Time and Material
A Time & Material project is an agreement where you bill by the hour at specific hourly rates. In other words, you invoice the work done which derives from the number of hours registered by team members.
While the project is progressing and team members are registering time on tasks or the projects themselves the number of hours registered will be translated to actual revenue. Actual revenue derives from the calculation below:
Hours registered X hourly rate of the team members role + expenses
