If you have a W9 for a Subcontractor - do you need to list them as a Expense/Subcontractor - we do work with some companies that do work for us, but they all are INC and I have W-9's for them - so listing them as a vendor with their W9 makes sense - but is that ok?
Yes, that’s okay to enter the subcontractor as a Vendor, Catz.
That’s how we enter subcontractors in QuickBooks. Add them how you usually add your Vendors. If in case the subcontractor is eligible for tracking 1099, make sure that you put a check mark in the Vendor eligible for 1099 checkbox. This is to indicate that they are 1099 subcontractors.
I actually know that - I wasn't clear - do I need to enter the services entered in an Expense Account (like called Contractor) - even if I have if I have a W9 Or is it ok to enter it as a "non-inventory part"- with the contractor having a W9 I don't know if that makes more sense
