Use a progress invoice to bill your customers based on the progress of a job, such as phases of work.
A progress invoice is billed on progress against an estimate. If you'd like to bill your customers on progress, such as phases of work, first create an estimate. You don't need to give it to your customer, but you'll use it to invoice your customer on progress against the estimate.
By creating estimates in QuickBooks, you'll be able to run reports on both progress invoices and estimates. You'll also be able to keep track of any outstanding estimates you have with customers.
