I have a contract. They pay me mileage how do I class it? Product/Service

Hi @Desimoto,


I'll take care of this query for you. 


You can enter a billable expense for your mileage since your customer pays you for it. As for the transaction itself, you can use the Category Details (an expense account) directly, instead of a product/service. Don't forget to tick the Billable box, as well as enter the specific customer you want to bill for the expense under the Customer/Project column. As for which class to use to track these billable expenses, you'll be the one to decide. You can either create a new one for this specific purpose or use an already existing class. 


See the sample screenshot below for reference:




Open this article to learn more about this process: Enter billable expenses. It includes a short video on how to create a billable expense within QuickBooks Online (QBO).


If you encounter any issues with the QBO app tracking your mileage, keep this article for future reference: Fix mileage tracking issues in the QuickBooks Online mobile app


I'll be glad to be of more help, should you require any. Post a comment below, and I'll get back to you.
