Use job types to categorize your jobs - for example, New Pool Construction, Spa Construction, or Renovation. Job types define the default GL posting accounts, burden rate, and retainage for the job.

You can also group and filter most of the Job Billing reports by job type.

Step 1: Click New on the Job Types tab on the Job Administration screen

  1. Open the Job Types tab on the Job Administration screen (Administration > Job Costing > General Setup > Job Types).
    • The Job Types tab displays all of the job types that have already been created and can be assigned to a job.
  2. Click Add to create a new job type.. The New Job Type screen appears.

Step 2: Input the basic information

  • Name - Enter the name of the job type.
  • (optional) Retainage - Percentage of each job bill that is withheld pending the successful completion of the contracted work.
  • (optional) Labor Burden - Percentage that represents general overhead labor expenses such as payroll, insurance, and benefits. This is applied to timecard labor hours.

Step 3: Select the GL accounts

  • Jobs in Progress - An asset holding account that retains all expenses and profit while the job is active and until final revenue recognition occurs.  During final revenue recognition, the Jobs in Progress account is cleared out.
    • Transactions that post to Jobs in Progress include: Delivered job materials, approved timecards (labor hours), AP checks, AP invoices and AP debit memos.  Profit will also post to Jobs in Progress IF you're recognizing revenue using the Percent Complete method.  See the Job Posting Outline for more information.
