Need to disable billable check marks on bills!

I am using QB Premier. If I create a Sales Order for parts x, y, and z. Those parts then need to be ordered from channel partner vendor so, from the sales order, I select "create purchase order" which will carry through the parts(or items) and quantity from the sales order to produce a purchase order that will go to the vendors. It also carries through the "customer" from the sales order which is paired with each item on the Purchase order. When I receive the parts from the vendor with an invoice and create the bill for that PO, all items from that PO have the "billable" box checked. I do not want this box checked. These are not billable to the customer except by the invoice created from the Sales Order. I have "unchecked" the preference to "mark all expenses as billable" but it appears that, because there is a customer paired with the item on the bill, that preference does not apply and the billable box is automatically checked! I spend a lot of time unchecking those boxes and it is incredibly frustrating! If I create a PO from outside the SO, all is well and the box is not checked. However, that isn't acceptable either because I have to enter all the items from the SO instead of QB populating the PO for me. How do I turn off the billable thing all together or get that box to default to unchecked even if the customer is present? We don't use it at all and want it to stop! Thanks in advance for any help!

Re: Need to disable billable check marks on bills!

Greetings, tsd81.

 

I'm here to provide some insight regarding this matter.

 

I've managed to replicate this on my end, and I got the same result. After some research, I discovered we don't currently have an option to disable the billable checkbox.

 

It's my priority that you're able to use QuickBooks seamlessly, so I'll be sending feedback based on this interaction. The updates and changes to QuickBooks are largely the results of feedback provided by users, just like yourself. That said, I'm making it my top priority to submit feedback to our engineers and make them understand the importance of an option to disable this.

 

In the meantime, I would recommend that you manually uncheck them for now when you create the bills. Please don't hesitate to let me know if there's anything else I can help you with. I'll be here to help you out.

Add me to the list of those that would like to be able to deactivate the "billable" check box! I hope that is resolved soon! I've been unclicking that box for years!

I'm like the other two!  Please put in a disable option for this. I've been dealing with trying to uncheck past bills forever now. What a pain.

Has this issue been resolved and what is the resolution? It is very annoying to have to uncheck every line on a vendor invoice

For now, there are no updates from our engineers yet on when it'll be available. You'll want to manually uncheck the billable box.

 

Also, you can check out updates and new features in QuickBooks through the Help menu. Then select New Features and then click What's New.
