I am in the process of setting up Quickbooks Pro for my remodeling and woodworking business. I have used Quickbooks Pro for the remodeling portion of my business for several years, but now I want to start tracking and job costing my woodworking activities. I am wondering how detailed I should get in setting up items to track my woodworking projects. I would like to know what others have done.
I mostly make built-ins, custom cabinets, shelving and an occasional piece of furniture. I would like the items I setup in quickbooks to also be job codes which I will use to track my time on these jobs. For example milling rough stock, cutting joints, assembly, finishing etc.
I guess I am just wondering if I should break it down to every step of the process or keep it general and simple, just wondering what has worked for others.
