Classes compared to customer, job, and vendor type

Use a "class" to classify transactions. Classes can apply to all transactions, so they are not tied to any particular customer.

Use a "type" to classify customers, jobs, and vendors.

For example, you might have "wholesale" and "retail" customer types. You can then get financial reports focused by type of customer. But maybe you need a third classification that spans any type of customer. In this case, you can use QuickBooks classes. For example, if you have separate departments, you can create a class for each department, such as "children's" and "women's." Or if you have two stores, you can set up a class for each store.

Each time you enter a sale in QuickBooks, enter the class associated with that sale. Then you can get reports on income and expenses by class regardless of which types of customers are involved.
