Entering a bill for an independent contractor

Let's say you hire a writer to create a brochure for you. It takes them 15 hours to complete the project, and you pay them $20 an hour. Let's assume you have already added the independent contractor as a vendor in QuickBooks.

  1. Create a service item called "Marketing Writing".
  2. When the writer sends you an invoice for the project, enter a bill.

    On the Items tab:

    • In the Items column, select Marketing Writing. QuickBooks automatically enters 20 in the Cost column. This is the rate you assigned to the Marketing Writing service item.

    • Enter 15 in the Qty column. QuickBooks automatically calculates the total cost of the service item (15 x 20 = 300) and enters that number in the Amount column.
