Why can't I mark expenses as billable?

I have "mark all expenses as billable" AND "track reimbursed expenses as income" selected.

I have an account, customer job and class on the expense.

The account is "Billable expenses" and it's a Cost of Doing Goods account.

 

Why, oh why, does the checkbox for BILLABLE not appear in the column under BILLABLE?

 

I thought Quickbooks Online was awful — turns out Quickbooks Desktop for Mac is worse.

So I can turn on billable expenses as an option... but I can't actually mark anything as a billable expense? Are you serious?

Hi leenahw,

 

The billable expense is actually available in QuickBooks for Mac. It's even available in the 2013 version. What version do you have?

 

There could be damaged programmed components that triggered this behavior. You can update your QuickBooks to load the fixes. Then, try creating billable expenses again and see if you can mark them.

 

If the same thing happens, please get in touch with Support to check this further. They are available from 6AM-6PM (PT) Mon-Fri and 6AM-3PM (PT) on Saturdays.

  1. Open this link: https://help.quickbooks.intuit.com/en_US/contact.
  2. Choose QuickBooks Mac Desktop.
  3. Select the Using QuickBooks for Mac topic.
  4. Scroll down and click on Get Phone Number.

You can also check the Little Square page if you need more references for QuickBooks Mac.

 

We're just around if you have other questions in mind.

Change the type of expense account, cost of goods sold will not work.
