I've started a very small business that sells t-shirts with my own designs (consisting of artwork, text and/or photography).
Products will typically be MADE when ordered.
I will keep supplies on hand for making the t-shirts when necessary.
There won't be a standing inventory of products ready for sale - unless surplus from some previous order exists.
When a sale is made the supply items are pulled and the finished product is made and delivered to the customer.
The following supply items go into the product:
-- blank t-shirts. 1 individual blank is used to create 1 finished t-shirt.
-- ink, vinyl, paper, some misc supplies are all used in the production of a t-shirt. I cannot exactly track how much of these objects goes into 1 finished t-shirt.
How would you account for the purchase of these items, and then the subsequent use of these items?
What is the simplest way? I'm using DESKTOP PRO but I can upgrade if it makes life easier.
Thanks for your time.
Consider upgrading to QB Desktop Premier to utilize the Sales Order feature and manage your backorder process.
You may purchase a one time license of QB Desktop 2021 or QB Desktop 2020 at a lower price. Starting next month, they only offer QB Desktop 2022 with the subscription license.
From this article it seems the only real benefit to this [Sales Order - Invoice - Payment - Deposit System] would be..
"This way, you know what products you still need to buy from vendors, so you can complete your customer’s order on time."
There is no assembly feature on QBD Pro.
Please refer to the Original Post. I'm looking for advice on how to account for these things in this particular situation. Please respond with an example of how you would account for these things. Thank you.
