For what purpose? For tax, either way is 1099
There IS an exception for the need to send a 1099 to the drawing company if it is a corporation
Hi Lane. Yes, for tax, as a by-product of this question, but primarily for how to categorize them for job costing breakdown.
I would use supplier UNLESS this is a part of the "deal" (and again this is really semantics) but if the grantor of the contract is giving you the contract because of WHICH design company you're using I'd use subcontractor
If you can switch at will, they're really more of a supplier
Why I'm asking: are they just a supplier (as in a parts purchase) or a subcontractor, and somewhat responsible (as in a fabricator sense). Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX answered that question as I was typing.
They are a supplier in this situation.
Glad I could help
Also, sometimes we use other staffing services, would their cost also be considered supplier/
Yes, especially in that scenario, where you are using a service and they are not (necessarily) a part of the job (that particular contract) ... although I would think contract labor would be more descriptive, at leaset as a description
Great. Thank you.
