How do I include PST in the cost of a COGS item when adding the item to an invoice?
We charge a 30% markup on materials on our construction jobs. Right now QuickBooks desktop is bringing over the net cost of items I add to invoices. It should be net+PST to cover our actual costs. I'm using items for COGS, but the items don't have standard prices (an example is "lumber" as an item - the cost varies every time). We pay GST and PST and we charge GST only.
Perhaps the answer is to enter COGS as expenses and not as items.
