Types of Items

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

  • Service item— A service you perform, such as teaching, writing, manual labor, carpet laying, legal services, or child care.

  • Non-inventory part item— Something 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 he raises are considered non-inventory items.

  • Other charge item— Other amounts you charge your customers, such as delivery or packaging fees, go into this category.

  • Inventory part item— Something you keep in stock and subsequently sell, such as lumber, t-shirts, or seeds.
