How do I create this report?
This report summarizes how accurately your company estimated job-related
costs and revenues. The report compares estimated cost to actual cost and
estimated revenue to actual revenue for all customers. If your company did
multiple jobs for a customer, the report shows subtotals for each job.
The Est. Cost and Act. Cost columns compare your estimated cost to your
actual cost for each job. If you use QuickBooks payroll, the cost amounts
include salary and wages assigned to specific jobs. If you also set up
QuickBooks to include payroll expenses prorated by job, the report includes
those expenses as costs.
The Est. Revenue and Act. Revenue columns compare your estimated revenue to
your actual revenue from each job.
The ($) Diff columns show the difference between the estimated and actual
amounts. A negative amount in this column means that the estimate was too high;
a positive amount means that the estimate was too low.
