Adding an Item to Your Item list in Quickbooks

The "Item" feature in Quickbooks sets up default income and expense accounts for transactions that your regularly do.  Items can be Inventory, Service Charges, Sales Tax codes, and more.  Each item will always default to the same income and/or expense account that you set as the default. 

To add an item to your item list chose "Lists" on the top menu bar in Quickbooks, and "Item List" in the drop down menu.

From the Item List window select the "Item" tab on the bottom menu bar, then select "New" from the pop-up list.

In your New Item entry screen you will be able to create your entire Item list.  We will address specifics about what types and coding should be used in other blogs.

This is the basic step for creating your Items.  Please submit a comment for more details, or to see a post with the solution for your specific situation.
