I work for a small construction company and currently use QuickBooks Desktop: Premier Contractor Edition 2020 (for windows) I am trying to get more accurate job costing reports and want to have labor hours assigned to a job and a service job. For example if employee 1 spent 2 hours on framing at the "smith" job, I would like to be able to assign the two hours of labor to the job but also to a service item. So when the Job Costing Report is run, it reflects the cost of labor and materials. Is this possible? If yes, what is the best/most accurate way to do so.
For Reference, we do not use QuickBooks Payroll service, we use a third party and import the transactions to QuickBooks
I'll give some details to ensure you'll be able to track the job cost, dfcurry581.
