QB Issue Resolution:
Generally the ‘class’ field will best be used for the locations – the theory being that a branch may use ALL the P&L accounts so there’s no point in duplicating all of them,
while the internal profit centers can be managed by a combination of items & accounts, but those do not cover the entire CoA so the number of special items/account per profit center may be more limited.
You may have to do a major overhaul of your chart of accounts, which isn’t as bad as it may sound because you can move and rename accounts freely without effecting their contents – so prior year comps are always consistent after a CoA restructure.
