What is the difference between class and location? How many classes and/or locations can you create?

Hi trevor-lindley,

 

Classes and locations operate similarly in QuickBooks, but the intent of them is slightly different. Classes are generally for categorising business departments or different services your business may provide, while locations could be used to categorise different business locations, such as tasks from an office in another suburb. 

 

Here is a handy article that details this more and gives better real-life examples: https://quickbooks.intuit.com/au/resources/product-updates/using-classes-and-locations-in-quickbooks...

 

Also, there is no limit to how many classes and locations you can create. Here's a handy article on technical limits of QuickBooks just for reference: https://quickbooks.intuit.com/learn-support/en-us/other-questions/quickbooks-online-file-size-and-fe...
