Project Cost Completion

How to change % of completion


3 Comments 3

Project Cost Completion

Hello there, @bm2020.


The project cost will base on the bills and checks issued to the Project. Let's check the estimate or invoiced cost since this will be the basis of Job Costing.


Once checked, edit the transaction with the said project. You can remove the cost so it will reduce the completion or add to increase it.  


Here's how;


  1. Go to the Customer menu at the top, then Customer Center
  2. Click the Transactions tab.
  3. Select an Estimate or Invoice.
  4. Click the transaction with the said project.
  5. Click Save and Close or Save and New.
  6. Hit Yes to the prompt message.

Once done, the percentage of your project cost completion is changed.

Project Cost Completion

Thank you for your response.  I still have been unable to get Quickbooks desktop to pull a cost to complete report.  We are a landscaping company so I am not sure if the data is in Quickbooks correctly to allow it to pull the report we need.  I'm still trying to find an answer.
