QuickBooks Tips | Using Class Tracking

Posted by Lauri A. Lisanti, CPA, MAcc, CPS, Certified QB ProAdvisor on Jul 31, 2017 1:15:00 PM

What is QuickBooks Class tracking?

Class tracking is a feature in QuickBooks that enables you to keep track of your transaction data by creating classes to categorize them.  

What is a class?

Classes are assigned to transactions that relate to one another by category.  For instance, many clients have a need to track income and expenses by categories such as, department, business segment, location, etc.

This feature is the best way for a business to separate any significant segments of the business without having to add additional income and expense accounts to the general ledger.

Examples:

  • For profit companies may want to track multiple locations or divisions of the company.
  • Not-for-profit companies may need to track grants and restricted and unrestricted funds.
  • Any company doing business with a governmental entity can use classes to track fixed priced jobs versus cost plus jobs versus overhead.
