If your company needs to Track Inventory you will need a QuickBooks Online Plus or QuickBooks Online Advanced subscription. Your Products and Services should be setup before you start creating purchase or sales documents for your business in QuickBooks Online. If you purchase and sell products or services to your customers, they will need to be setup and mapped to the appropriate income and cost of goods sold expense accounts within your chart of accounts. This is how QuickBooks Online tracks your income and cost of sales that are included in your Profit and Loss Report. Using products and services on your purchase and sales forms also enables you to create meaningful sales reports. Some businesses sell products and services together, and some items are taxable while others are non-taxable. It is important to correctly setup your products and services in your QuickBooks Online account. On-hand inventory values are tracked in QuickBooks Online using the FIFO (First-In-First-Out) method. Each time you purchase an item that you sell the item value can change in QuickBooks Online. When your product inventory is setup correctly, QuickBooks Online automatically updates the your current Inventory Asset Balance each time an item is purchased.

We Create Your Products & Services and Map Them to Accounts

With this service, your accountant will create the products and services that you purchase and sell to your customers and map them to their appropriate income and cost of goods sold accounts within your existing chart of accounts. You can upload a list of your products and services into a folder within your secure document upload portal or you can email the list directly to your accountant. Your accountant will send a notification to request your products and services list that will show up on your client dashboard. We have an Excel template available that you can use to provide your products and services for setup. You can also create bundles of products and services that you frequently sell together. If you have an existing products and services list, your accountant will update this list for you with this service offering. Once your accountant has created or updated your products and services list they will create custom reports for you that you can access directly within your QuickBooks Online account.
