Every situation can get infinitely more complex than this, but the concept is still the same. The whole trick is in how you want to set up your item list. I want to stress the term WANT because that really is what it comes down to. I have worked with many construction companies over the years and they all want it set up a little different. We’re really talking about how your item list is set up. Many things need to be broken up into Labor vs. Parts:

  • Carpentry
  • Electrical
  • Plumbing

Then I have had contractors who wanted the item list set up to describe which are of the house was being worked on so he could use that information for future estimates:

  • Kitchen and Bath
  • Outdoor
  • Landscaping
  • Driveway
  • Drywall
  • Master bedroom
  • Doors and Trim / Framing

So in the end as the accounting and bookkeeping solution we are here for you to set it up YOUR way so that you have the information you need to make the right decisions about your business.
