Job Costing...

We have been using quickbooks on line for years but with some big changes in the company we need to go to a job costing model.  Can we do this with Quickbooks on line (likely starting from a brand new company) or must we switch to a different quickbooks? 

 

Please help...  Not sure how to do this.

In QuickBooks Online (Plus and Advanced plans), they've Projects feature which is not exactly the traditional job costing model but this one will track costs by customer.

 

Refer to this article more info:

Note: QuickBooks Desktop Premier version is much better for job costing with payroll and item costs.

If you simply need to track time by job, consider a time tracker app with the job costing feature. You can create jobs, customers, or any type of label and then have your employees punch in and out of it. When you go to run a report, you will be able to see how much time was spent at each job.

You also may utilize the Project Management feature available in QBO Plus and Advanced. Should you need more features or you just need using QBO SS/Essentials, consider having a project management app to integrate with your QBO. Start exploring from these apps

Thank you.  Just starting to do this...  looks quite good.  Can we upload receipts and such directly into QuickBooks from our phones?  Never looked into it in this detail before.

Most project management apps have the expense management feature. You can select the desired currency, amount, details, client, project, set a tag if you wish to filter after it later on or even add a receipt. The expense will be reflected at a project level.

 

BP as the time tracker app doesn't have the expense management feature.  You may explore TS Pro as a time tracker app with the project management and expense management feature.
