Technically a sub contractor is in business for himself, as  a result he invoices you his customer and you enter that bill and pay it.

You are correct. We have a spreadsheet that we use to pay subcontractors.  I will enter them as Vendors to pay. Can I use the Tag field to generate a report that shows them what they are getting paid for?

Thanks for coming back to the Community userzaina.


I appreciate adding more information about your concern. Yes, you can use the Tag field to see what your vendors are getting paid for. Let’s activate the feature so you can start using it.


Here’s how:                  

 

  1. Go to the Gear icon at the top and choose QuickBooks labs under Your Company.tag.png tag.png
  2. Navigate to the Tags section and move the slider to the right to turn it on.tag2.png tag1.png
  3. Click Done to keep the changes.

To create tags:

 

  1. Tap the Gear icon and tap Tags under Lists.
  2. Press New to choose Tag group/Tag.tag2.png
  3. In the Create new tag screen, enter a description that will identify it in the Tag name field.tag3.png
  4. If you want to classify it, use the Group tag option.
  5. Hit the Save button.

The Tag field will show when you create a transaction. From there, pick the one you want to use.
