Turning On Job Costing

To turn on the job costing or estimating feature in QuickBooks, choose Edit⇒Preferences. Click the Jobs & Estimates icon on the left; click the Company Preferences tab; and then use the Do You Create Estimates? and Do You Do Progress Invoicing? radio buttons to tell QuickBooks whether, in fact, you want to do these things.

Note: progress invoicing refers to the practice (common to some construction and other project-based businesses) of invoicing a client or customer as work on a project progresses. In other words, rather than invoicing for the total amount at the very end of a project, you might invoice half the agreed-upon amount when work is roughly half done. And then you might invoice the remaining half of the agreed-upon amount when the work is finally finished.
