Job estimates vs. actuals detail report

How do I create this report?

Go to the Reports menu, click Jobs, Time & Mileage, and then click Job Estimates vs. Actuals Detail.

What this report tells you

This report shows how accurately your company estimated costs and revenues for the customer or job whose name you entered. The report compares estimated and actual costs—and estimated and actual revenues—for each item that you billed. That way, you can see which parts of the job you estimated accurately and which parts you did not.

  • The Est. Cost and Act. Cost columns compare the estimated cost to the actual cost for each item billed. If you use QuickBooks payroll, the costs include salary and wages assigned to the job. 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 estimated revenue to actual revenue from each item billed.

  • 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.

To see a list of the transactions that make up an amount, double-click the amount.

Date range

The report covers all dates from your QuickBooks records. You can restrict the period covered by choosing a different date range from the Dates drop-down list.

What do the different date ranges mean?
