The option of setting up classes and locations in QuickBooks Online is used by many businesses to tag and separate out accounting transactions by department, location and type. Classes and locations are free form lists. Classes and locations can include multiple sub-classes and sub-locations. Classes are flexible, as they can be assigned once per transaction or line-by-line. This option is helpful to businesses that sell products with different characteristics such as color, brand, style and size. Only one location can be assigned to a transaction. Locations are often used by businesses that have one customer with multiple locations, or own a business with multiple locations. Classes and locations can only be created in the Plus and Advanced subscriptions. The Plus subscription is limited to a total of 40 classes and locations combined, and there is no limit to the number of classes and locations that you can have in the Advanced subscription. You will have to turn on class and location tracking in your Company Settings to add your class and locations lists in QuickBooks Online.

We Create or Update your Class and Location Lists in QuickBooks Online

If you already have class and location lists in QuickBooks Online, your accountant can update these lists for you with this service. You can work with your accountant to edit or inactivate classes and locations that you no longer wish to use. You will provide a list of new classes and locations to be setup. You can upload a list of your classes and locations into a folder within your secure document upload portal or you can email the list directly to your accountant. Once your accountant has setup or updated your classes and locations, your accountant can create a variety of custom income, sales and expense reports that include your classes or locations. The mapping of classes and locations to existing transactions is not included with this service. This is a one-time project accounting service that your accountant can provide. Note that classes can be used as departments for payroll as well. Your accountant can assist you with classifying your payroll by department if you have payroll services with us.
