One of my clients uses me for bug fixes and feature extensions on various websites. We agreed to a pricing structure that is some sum per hour for the first 50 hours of work in a month, and a lower sum per hour afterwards. Is there an invoice class that can deal with this, or do I need to roll my own?

Well, if you have two different fees, why don't you simply say

  1. Basic charge , 50 units, price per unit
  2. Reduced charge, x unites, price per unit

That way, it is transparent to your customer.

Otherwise, I could think to build a \FeeStaged{...}{...}{...}{...} command which accepts a set of different remuneration levels plus the hour limitation.
