Invoicing for a percentage of the bill

I have a client that is an independent contractor.  He gets paid 60% of what he bills the homeowner.  Other than having to manually figure out what he should be billing, is there a way to have QB automatically figure 60% of the total as due or an automatic (no end date) 40% discount on every invoice?

 

Example:  Invoice #5237 was billed to a homeowner as $500.  He turns in the invoice to the main contractor and needs to bill the contractor for 60%.  Instead of manually figuring the total due to my client (the sub-contractor) as $300 then entering the invoice in QB, is there a way to get the 60% tallied automatically on every single invoice.

Re: Invoicing for a percentage of the bill

I appreciate the example you've shared, @SidMcGyver.

 

As of this time, we don't have an option to tally a percentage profit on every invoice automatically. 

 

I know this option would be a great help for your client and other users so they can work seamlessly in QuickBooks Desktop. However, what we can consider right now is to manually enter the total amount due to the invoice. 

 

But I want to let you know that your voice matters and I'm submitting your feedback directly to our engineers. For now, you can visit our blog site so you'll be able to get the latest news about QuickBooks and what our Product Care Team is working on.
