When I buy shop supplies and record them in QB, do I record the shipping cost as an expense or COGS? I’m referring to items that I don’t resell (sandpaper, tools etc.).

Question:

When I buy shop supplies and record them in QB, do I record the shipping cost as an expense or COGS? I’m referring to items that I don’t resell (sandpaper, tools etc.). Should I create a separate category to track shipping for these things or do I enter the entire purchase as Materials and Supplies (an expense)

Answer:

>>>> I enter the entire purchase as Materials and Supplies (an expense) <<<<

It is fine to expense total bill in expense line.
