how do I enter supplier's bill to customer job so that I can keep track of amount?

I would like to know how I enter a supplier bill received for materials for a customer job so that I can track the amount of the job.  Where do I link it to customer's job name?  Many thanks.


I think the UK version has the same set up, in the US version it would be

Menu Edit>preferences>time & expenses> Company preferences Tab uncheck the mark all expenses as billable

in edit>preferences set the check mark to track billable expenses as income

then open the chart of accounts, edit each expense account you normally use for those expenses

the change you made  in preferences will put up an income select box on the account screen, choose the income account you want billable expenses to post to.  (I create an income account called billable exp income first)

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
