If your jobs typically involve the work of more than one accountant and you
bill their time at different hourly rates, you'll want to set up your Item
list to include those rates.
For example, suppose your firm has three accountants, all with different
hourly rates. If you want your invoices to show the time worked by each
accountant, you can set up your Item list like this:
Tax Services ("service" item with 0.00 rate)
Indiv Tax Rtn (subitem of Tax Services; 0.00 rate)
Partner (subitem of Indiv Tax Rtn; 100.00 rate)
Sr Acctnt (subitem of Indiv Tax Rtn; 85.00 rate)
Jr Acctnt (subitem of Indiv Tax Rtn; 60.00 rate)
When you're ready to invoice, click the appropriate subitem from
the drop-down list in the Item column and QuickBooks enters the service
description and rate for you. All you have to do is click Add Time/Costs to
transfer your time data to the invoice.
