Run job costing reportsLast updated on 03/22/2022
Job costing is calculated using material, equipment, PO, and payroll costs. The Jobs report template includes optional columns you can use to calculate job costs. Compare total costs to revenue to determine job profit.
Things to know
Each line in the report represents a job.
Click on a cost-related entry to drill down for additional details. For example, click PO Costs for a list of all POs used on a job.
Including payroll costs in job costing requires account configuration. Please contact Technical Support for details.
If your account is configured to include payroll costs, set technician burden rates without payroll costs to avoid double-counting payroll.
To run costing reports for projects, create a custom report using the Project Job Costing template.
