Question:

we buy sundries in bulk and then want to apply a charge to each job based on use. Inventory is not a suitable option how else can I make a cross charge without an invoice? Also General Journal does not work as it does not have item field for reporting so actual to estimate report is off.

Answer:

That will work if you just create zero internal invoicing for inventory transfer/allocation to jobs.

My preferred way is to create a new Transfer A/P Account (or other name) screen. It is the same A/P screen but it will differentiate this from operational Accounts Payable. You will use this to record cost allocation and inventory transfers with zero amount due. Most importantly, you can use many features for job costing.
