In QuickBooks, you can create classes that you assign to transactions. This lets you track account balances by department, business office or location, separate properties you own, or any other meaningful breakdown of your business.
Many business owners have certain segments of their business that they want to keep a close eye on. By using the class tracking feature, you can define these segments and track their associated account balances on invoices, bills, and other documents.
Businesses with different departments or locations can use classes to report account balances for each department.
For example, if you had a restaurant with three locations, you might create an Uptown, a Midtown, and a Downtown class for tracking account balances by location. A farmer might create a class for each enterprise.For example, Corn, Hogs, and Soybeans. At the end of an accounting period, the restaurant could create separate reports for each location. Likewise, the farmer could create separate reports for each enterprise.
