What is job costing?

Job costing is the calculating of costs connected with a project. By using project costing software, you can keep track of your job costings, including:


These costs relate to the staff who will be working on a project. Calculate their rate and multiply that by the hours you've estimated the job.



Every job requires parts, tools and other physical materials. Their price is often fixed, so factor this into your cost projection for a job.



These are the general costs required to run your business. These could include rent, insurance, accounting, billing, and office equipment.

What is job costing, and how does it help my business?

Job costing is the process of tracking costs related to a project. It helps to estimate future projects based on past project performance.
