Repair Shop Entries

I have a client who is a repair shop, when they work on company vehicles how would someone recommend accounting for this activity.  I assume parts purchase will be expensed in company vehicle repair expense accounts.  My main issue is that they are in the business of billing hours worked so, when a technician works on a company vehicle do i record that time.  or is nothing booked for the time spent.

You're right, Jason416. Parts purchases can be recorded as an expense.


Although, I'd suggest conferring with your accountant on the best way to categorize it.


Regarding the billing hours, you can either create a bill, expense or check, and add the hours worked in the Description/Memo field. Then, you'll have to manually enter the amount. 


I'll include a screenshot for better guidance. 




When you pull up the Transaction List by Vendor report, the information will show (refer to my screenshot).
