This question is in regards ***** *****: Contractor Edition

Customer Question

This question is in regards ***** *****: Contractor Edition 2013. We are trying to do job costing for every job we complete. WE have created the CUSTOMER:JOB and apply any expense when receipts get turned in to that job. What about materials we buy for inventory? to have in stock? How do we do job costing in Quickbooks for that? If we buy several commodes to have in stock, there will only be one invoice/receipt for that purchase, so how do we apply, for example a single commode to a job when used?

you should not be entering the bill you pay for stocked items as part of the job cost. you do that with non stocked items that are purchased only for the job.for stocked items you should just invoice them as part of the job quickbooks will already know the price and cost of the item as it calculates it for a normal invoice.

I don't understand. Would you please detail the process for me?

sorry there are a couple of ways to do it. Depending on whether you sell the commode with its own price or you just include it as part of the job and bill for the whole jobif you do it the second way you can use the instructions on this page to get the cost into the job and deduct the number used from inventory
