As a consultant, I travel and bill mileage to my customers at the IRS mileage rate. Is there an easy way to enter a billable mileage charge to a specific customer through the QB Mobile App? Is there an easy 3rd party app? I'm using TSheets for billable hours, but it doesn't do mileage. Thanks
The mileage feature is mainly used for tracking your business miles and vehicle expenses in QuickBooks Online (QBO). However, the option to link it to a bill is unavailable in QuickBooks.
Although, you can create an expense transaction and make it billable to your customer. This way, you can easily record and track billable expenses so your customer can reimburse them when they receive their invoice.
Let me show you how:
Step 1: Turn on billable expense tracking to record billable expenses.
Go to Settings ⚙ and select Account and Settings.
Click the Expenses tab.
From the Bills and expenses section, select Edit ✎.
Turn on the Show Items table on expense and purchase forms, Track expenses and items by customer, and Make expenses and items billable options.
