QB Issue Resolution:

Doing that is fine.  items are what you do, sell, make, purchase

I use non inventory items for what you are talking about, no matter the qty I order using a non inventory item the full amount posts immediately to the expense account listed on the item – non inventory does not stock qty

but I can report on that non inventory to see the total qty ordered per date range, helps me to decide whether or not I need to start stocking the item.

Resolution for Issue 'I manage a 100% service business (orthodontic office). Currently, I enter bills using categories but I’ve always been tempted to explore using the item details instead for certain vendors. My goal would be to monitor individual item costs over time so I can see if prices are going up and if I need to shop around it would be easier to comparison shop if I had the price data (gloves, masks, brackets, wires, etc.). I would never be interested in a COGS or anything like that. All of our individual account (i.e. patient) income is tracked in a different software program. From what I’ve read, this isn’t the normal use of the item details feature so I’m just curious if what I’m thinking would work and/or if there’s a better way to do what I’m trying to do? Thanks!' available: Yes (Solved).
