I organize for a nonprofit ski and winter sports club. We organize several trips throughout the year, taking payments from members (for themselves and their family members) for trips that are paid to ski resorts and hotels.
How do I set up QB to handle accounting for trips? I'm going to guess that the resort/hotel will be my vendor, the ski club member is my customer...
is the trip an inventory item or something else?
No, not inventory
Also, I imagine I'd need to set up to accommodate prices of different ski resorts for items such as lift tickets, ski rentals, etc.
The money you collect prior to the trip would post to a current liability account. Then you pay for the trip from that liability account
