Equipment Rate Effective Date

This field is used to specify the effective date for equipment usage rates. This allows new usage rates to be defined ahead of time, while preserving the current usage rates until the new ones are in effect. When initializing billings, or adding JC transactions to existing billings, the effective date determines which usage rates to use. Equipment usage transactions with “actual” dates prior to the effective date will be billed at the old usage rate, whereas transactions with “actual” dates on or after the effective date will be billed at the new usage rate. If an effective date is not specified, the new rate is used and the old rate ignored.
