Complex Invoicing For Residential Remodel Projects

Trouble with residential remodel invoicing?

  • Down Payments and Job Deposits?

  • Change Orders and Related Payments?

  • Multiple Progress Payments to Track and Report?

  • Project Baseline, Changes and Payments to Report?

A lot of residential contractors use QuickBooks to keep track of the job costing and invoicing their customers and it works well if all you have is a few simple invoices.

The problem is when you get beyond two invoices, add some job deposits and change orders the process gets real tricky because there is no "Magic Button" in QuickBooks that will generate an invoice that makes sense to your customer.

Our founder Randal DeHart, used QuickBooks in his construction firms for many years and he understands the frustration of trying to make QuickBooks do things it is not designed to do. He developed an excel program for complex invoices which we use to generate complex invoices for our clients. You do not need any excel skills because we do everything for you!

These invoices show the money trail from beginning to end in a way that everyone can understand and appreciate which means you get paid faster, with less hassle and your clients will love you for it!

These are commonly known as either Application for Payment, Pay Applications, Payment Applications or G702 G703. The construction bookkeeping is done in QuickBooks and during the QuickBooks setup there are some special accounts and lists that we install ahead of time. These more complex invoices have the ability to keep track of multiple deposits, payments, change orders, payment history and running totals in a way that your customer can follow. We prepare these as part of our bookkeeping for contractors package and send them to you as often as you need them.

This Is Only The Tip - Of the Iceberg. Everything we publish in our blog posts, articles in other websites, and anything you can find on the web is nothing compared to what is available to you as our client. We show only the basic tools to open your mind to the possibilities that are available to you. The best finish carpentry tools in the hands of a golf professional without proper carpentry training will not produce anything near to what a skilled finish carpenter can. The same can be said about the best construction business consulting and accounting tools in the hands of a skilled finish carpenter. And I say that with respect and admiration for everyone in construction.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

When You Become A Client - Then we can tap into our resources of knowledge and strategy banks. We use the reports hidden in your QuickBooks in order to diagnose and understand your construction business and develop plans and help you implement a path to success for you and you alone because every contractor has unique Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (S.W.O.T. Analysis) that when understood can lead to a Strategic Roadmap which cannot help but make a lot of money.
