Bad bookkeeping can result in bad business, including loss of profit, inefficient use of time, and general disorganization—not to mention the troubles you’ll have when tax time comes! Computers and software such as Quickbooks has made bookkeeping easier, but it can still be time-consuming and confusing.

Job costing allows you to get an accurate estimate of how much any particular “job” will cost you, including materials, labor, overhead and other expenses, so that you can put the right price on that item or job for your customer.

Without proper job costing you risk losing money by not charging enough, or losing customers by charging too much. Yet even in Quickbooks job costing can seem like a complicated and daunting task. Instead of undertaking it yourself, let the professionals do it for you.

For a modest fee, they can tailor your entire job costing system to your specific needs and calculate the costs on any given job for you.
