I'm sorry, Shane is unavailable to assist right at the moment, but I would be more than willing to help.;
How are you today?
The items that you are explaining would be classified as "supplies" not COGS. You would not classify as COGS unless you could directly trace the items back to what you are selling.
They are part of the cost of providing your service.
As such, these are an expense, and not COGS
They will go in the COGS section of the Schedule C though
You start with beginning inventory (which is your parts) then you add the various costs such as materials and supplies, to that and then subtract out ending inventory. The amount is expensed in the current year, but is included in the cost of goods sold
You do not have to keep track of which jobs these parts were used for.
Do you have any questions?
