Setting Up Items

The word item is used extensively throughout the QuickBooks program. This term refers to any amount that you list on an invoice or other sales form. Each item you set up takes one of the following forms:

  • Service Item A service you perform, such as teaching, writing, manual labor, carpet laying, or child care.

  • Non-Inventory Part Item Something that you sell but do not hold in inventory. A contractor, for example, might purchase some hardware items specifically for the home improvement job he is performing, and then resell those items to his customer. These hardware items are not considered part of his inventory. A farmer raises livestock for resale or grows crops—the livestock and crops that he raises are considered noninventory items.

  • Other Charge Item Other amounts that you charge your customers, such as delivery or packaging fees, go into this category.

  • Inventory Part Item Something that you keep in stock and subsequently sell, such as lumber, T-shirts, or seeds.
