Use Locations to determine where to assign your business expenses. A location can be a room, a building, a geographic area, or anything else that helps you to classify costs.
HINT-- The Goldenseal accounting software uses locations for job costing reports. It's also a convenient way to group or classify any business transactions.
Cost locations can be whatever works best for your business. You might use them for different departments in a retail store, different operations in a service business, different areas in a project, or different processes in a manufacturing plant.
EXAMPLE-- For a construction company you might use Cost Categories for different phases of construction work, and Locations for the different rooms in a typical building project.
To enter a Location, follow these steps:
Enter the following information for each Location:
Name-- Type in a brief name for this location. This is the text that will appear in clairvoyant fields.
Locations can be assigned in Estimates, Material
Purchases, Labor Hours, and other transactions
that involve costs.
