20 Oct QuickBooks Contractors Edition 2016: Worth The Cost?
The only real advantage of the Contractors Edition of QuickBooks is the reporting, but those reports are incredibly valuable. If you are going to invest in QuickBooks software for your construction or trades business invest in the Contractors Edition.
The reports such as Unpaid Bills by Job cannot be forced in other editions of QuickBooks. This report can be a very important cash flow management tool. Expenses Not Assigned to Jobs is a key report to your cost savings strategy and will help you catch any items that may not have been assigned to a job but should have. Billed/Unbilled Hours by Person and Job reports are part of my weekly maintenance report set for any business with billable hours. These reports combined with great practices are a strong foundation for construction accounting.
