We believe QuickBooks Pro has the best combination of power and simplicity for small-volume builders and general contractors. It makes accounting simple for non-accountants because it works the way you do. You've been writing checks for years. With QuickBooks Pro, you fill in blanks on a check the same as always. But you do it on a computer screen.
And you add notes to check stubs about accounts and jobs to be charged just the way you've always added notes to the stubs of paper checks. Timecards, purchase orders, and invoices work the same way. Can QuickBooks Pro do the job for you? The thousands of construction companies now using QuickBooks Pro are good evidence that it can. If you're serious about making your construction business grow and prosper, you'll want the accounting and reporting power built into QuickBooks Pro.
There's an old saying among builders about construction accounting: "A builder who knows where he stands won't stand there very long. If you agree, QuickBooks Pro may be perfect for your company. For more than ten years, the three authors of this book have used construction accounting packages, some costing thousands of dollars. None are as slick, professional, and as easy to use as QuickBooks Pro.
In our opinion, QuickBooks Pro offers the builder, remodeler, general contractor, and specialty subcontractor the best off-the-shelf accounting program on the market.
It's affordable, reliable, and probably has all the features you'll need. Even though QuickBooks Pro never mentions debits and credits, it handles accounting and reporting functions the same way an accountant would. You may never notice, but QuickBooks Pro uses conventional double-entry accounting.
That means each time you enter a transaction, the numbers go two directions - one way as a debit and another way as a credit. Suppose you enter a bill from a supplier.
Behind the scenes, QuickBooks Pro records the transaction two ways, first as an account payable and then as a charge to an expense category. Strictly speaking, the way it comes out of the box, QuickBooks Pro isn't a true construction accounting program. But it's adaptable enough to fit the needs of most construction companies like a glove.
For example, you can customize reports to get great job cost reports, just like a so-called "construction accounting package. Why Should You Believe Us? All three authors have been in construction, using computers, and using QuickBooks and QuickBooks Pro for many years. We're confident that what we've done for others we can do for you, too.

Karen conducts seminars nationwide for contractors who use QuickBooks Pro. Craig Savage has been a general building contractor, remodeler and custom homebuilder for over 25 years. In his free time Craig is a construction management computer consultant.
Jim Erwin is a partner in several second-generation family-owned construction companies in upstate New York that are involved in land development as well as residential and light commercial construction.
He's an active member of the National Association of Home Builders and has written articles on using computers in construction for a variety of construction magazines. What Comes Next?
But don't just take our word for it. Here's a brief summary of some of the features we'll show you to make QuickBooks Pro specific for your construction business needs. For example, when you buy materials from a vendor and receive an invoice or delivery slip, you enter the information in a screen form called a Bill. You've seen lots of these, even if you've never used a computer and don't know anything about accounting. QuickBooks Pro tracks payables and receivables so you can see at a glance what's owed and what's due.
Having all this information available almost instantly should help you sleep better at night. And it helps you make better decisions. For example, it's nice to know how long it's been since you received the last check when a customer asks for "just a little more work" on a project. And the estimating function built into QuickBooks Pro is limited, as you'll discover in Chapter Everything you need for estimating is on the CD inside the back cover of this book and gets installed when you select the "Complete" installation.
The first is to track orders placed for special order items, such as windows, doors, and skylights.
Another is to track what you've committed to pay subcontractors. For example, suppose a subcontractor bids a project at a certain price. You can use a purchase order to track the bid price to compare it with the bill he submits. The third use is to establish a schedule for multiple payment draws for a subcontractor. If you agreed to pay a framing contractor, say, 30 percent on completion of the floor framing, 30 percent on completion of the walls, and 40 percent after the roof framing, you can use purchase orders to keep track of those payment schedules and payments you make against them.
The timecard window looks like a paper timecard, so data entry will be a familiar task. You'll find QuickBooks Pro's payroll function to be very accommodating. QuickBooks Pro payroll handles tax withholding, additions, deductions, and company contributions.
Deductions such as health insurance, payments to a retirement plan, or union dues are simple to set up and report. So are company contributions such as health, life, and workers' comp insurance paid by the company.
You can record irregular payroll events such as bonuses, reimbursed travel expenses, and advances against salary.
QuickBooks Pro even keeps track of sick and vacation time due employees. QuickBooks Pro payroll reports provide all the information you need to file state and federal employer tax forms in any of the 50 states. That's part of the QuickBooks Pro payroll system.
Intuit, the developers of QuickBooks Pro, have a small additional charge for the current tax table. Payroll tax tables are updated automatically as tax rates change.
