Can I convert a vendor to a contractor?

Re: Can I convert a vendor to a contractor?

Converting a vendor to a contractor is as easy as 1,2,3, @trg-ryanh.


Contractors are individuals who do work for you but are not your official employees. You need to report independent contractors’ compensation on the 1099-MISC.


Here's how:

  1. Go to Expenses menu and choose Vendors.
  2. Select the vendor by clicking the name.
  3. Click the Edit button at the top of the screen.
  4. On the Vendor Information screen, place a check mark on the box next to Track payments for 1099.
  5. Hit Save.

Automatically, the vendor will now show under the Contractors tab.

That should do it, @trg-ryanh. Keep me posted if you have other concerns or questions about QBO. I'm still here to offer my helping hands.
