Category Breakdowns

Category breakdowns let you type in a list of items.

When you enter Category in the Breakdown popup menu, you will get a very simple breakdown table for categorizing expenses, estimating line items, or other business transaction details. 

Use category breakdowns when you just want to type in a simple description for each line item, and not use Cost Items or Assemblies.

Fill in the following columns for each row in the category breakdown table:

Cost Area-- Enter the basic job cost area for the item.
Category-- Enter the Cost Category for the item.
Subcategory-- If the job account uses a category system with subcategories, enter a cost subcategory.
Item-- Type in a brief description of a specific item that you've purchased.
Unit Cost-- Type in the cost of one unit of the item.
Size-- Type in the size of one unit.
Quantity-- Type in the number of items that you've purchased.
Item Total-- Goldenseal calculates the total cost for this line items (unit cost x quantity).
Tax-- Turn off the checkmark if this item is not taxable.  Turn it on if it is.
Location-- Enter a Location for the item.

NOTE-- The Category breakdowns for some transactions used in Goldenseal accounting software may have slightly different columns than this one.
