If I pay another business to perfom work for me, then bill my customer that same amount, how do I catagorize that? I can't find 'Sublet" anywhere.

I investigate auto acidents. At times I have to have a vehicle brought into a dealership and pay them to put the vehicle on a lift and remove certian items. When I bil my client I want to show that amount seperate, it is not my labor, but rather a sublet bill. How to catagorize the the expense?

I can help you with that, inspector0685

 

You'll need to create a Product/Service item for the parts that you've purchased then tagged it as Billable to the customer. Here's how to do it:

 

  1. Go to the Sales menu and select the Products and services tab.
  2. Select New.
  3. Select Non-inventory or Service.
  4. Enter the required fields.
  5. Click on Save and close.

Once done, create an invoice and select the billable expense so it will be charged to the invoice as a separate item. 

 

Please check out these links related to billable expense in QBO for the detailed guide:

I must not be explaing this correctly, there are no 'parts' being purchased or billed.

 

Here is the scenario:

I perform investigations on automobiles and aircraft. If I need to have a vehicle raised up on a hoist for the investigation, I have the owner bring the vehicle to a local dealer. That dealer has the vehicle brought into the shop, raised up, sometimes remove wheels or other components, then lowered and given back to the owner. The shop bills me for the use of the shop and mechanics time.

 

I then pay the shop or dealer to do that. I my world we call that sublet work.

 

Where and how does that get put in QB?

Not exactly sure how to explain this, or if it will even help, but we are an auto body shop.  We have multiple sublets.  We have a "Cost of goods sold" category.  For each sublet, we have sub categories that these go under.  (ie  Glass, mechanical, towing, etc). 

You can create any category or sub category you may need, in your chart of accounts.
