Qickbooks online to track a Renovation project budget

Hi there, @Ally11223.


Thanks for asking for recommendations here in the Community. I'd be happy to guide you in creating a budget project in QuickBooks Online. 


Here's how:


  1. Go to the Settings (gear icon) menu, then under Tools, choose Budgeting.
  2. Select the Add budget button, then enter a budget name in the Name field.  
  3. From the Fiscal Year drop-down, select the fiscal year for the budget, then use the options on the Interval drop-down menu to specify whether the budget is MonthlyQuarterly, or Yearly basis.
  4. Select Customer from the Subdivide by drop-down, then choose the project. 
  5. Select Next, then enter the amount per account and click Save and close.

For future reference, you also want to read this help article: Track income, costs, and profitability by project. It helps you learn about using projects to calculate your business income and its costs.
