Budget by class and location

Can I create a budget by location and class or is it one or the other? Basically subdivide and then subdivide again.

We would like to use Class for our departments and one department could have multiple locations. Basically treating the class and location fields as different segments in an account string. Our budget is set up by locations so for example we have IT-Location 1 and IT-Location 2 budgets.

Budget by class and location

Good day, jessicap3.

Glad to have you here in the QuickBooks Community. Allow me to share some information about Budgeting in QuickBooks Online.

As of this time, you can create a budget subdivided by Class, Customer or Location in your QBO Plus account.  If you wish to split a budget by both Class and Location, I’d recommend sending a product request to our developer for future enhancements.

To send this suggestion, click the Gear icon at the top and select Feedback. You can also submit your request via this link:

Budget by class and location

Is there any difference between budgeting by location or class? Is the reporting the same?


Budget by class and location

I'm glad you came to the Community with your concern, Paul Cutler.


In QuickBooks Online, Location Tracking and Class Tracking lets you track your income and expenses. You can use either one or both of them.


Classes represent meaningful segments in your company, like store departments or product lines. Location, on the other hand, is used to define the locations of different stores. 


Check out this article about setting budgets per class: Set budget targets for each class.

QBO Experts - Has this been updated for budgeting by class and location?  I need to drill down each class and location for a budget, but I'm not sure if this is something that is created of not?

Hi, finance-woodland.


I'm here to share some information about running data for budget and location.


As of now, the option to run a budget report by class and location is still unavailable in QuickBooks.


What you can do for now is run the data individually. Then, you can export them to an Excel file to combine the reports.
