When to Use Subcontract Types

Use Subcontract Types if you use the contract-writing features in Goldenseal to write contracts for subcontractors that do work for you.

For example, a construction company may have subcontracts with electricians, masons, painters and plumbers.

In Cost Items and Assemblies, the Subcontract Types field lets you determine which work is included in the specifications section of each subcontract.

in Contracts, the Subcontract Types field determines which unit costs are included in the specifications section for this contract.   If you leave the field blank, all items are included.
