I am doing the bookkeeping for a construction company and it has a Plant, Machinery and Vehicles department. This dept. purchase consumables and parts often for daily use and repairs. I would like to keep the inventory for these items which are not for resale. When entering an inventory item you must enter an Income account , so how do I enter these items which are not resale items?  QBD

Thanks for getting in touch with the Community, Desie24.


I can certainly understand how an ability to track inventory which won't be sold could be useful and have submitted a suggestion about it as of today.


You can also submit your own feature requests while using QuickBooks.


Here's how:


  1. In the top menu bar, go to Help, Send Feedback Online, then Product Suggestion....

  2. Choose a Type of Feedback and Product Area (optional) from your available drop-down menus.

  3. Enter any suggestions/feedback in the Here is my suggestion: field.

  4. If you'd like, include your name/email in the My name is: (optional) and My e-mail address is: (optional) fields.

  5. Select Send Feedback.


Your feedback's definitely valuable to Intuit. It will be reviewed by our Product Development team and considered in future updates. You can stay up-to-date with the latest news about your product by reviewing Intuit's Product Updates webpage.

If there's any additional questions, I'm just a post away. Have an awesome Friday!
