18.2 Voucher or Debit Memo Transactions

Charging costs to a job activity using a voucher or crediting costs to a job activity using a debit memo is performed in the same manner. For specific details on entering vouchers and debit memos, see the Accounts Payable Manual.

As an example of voucher entry to a job activity, we will purchase materials for activity 8900.100m. The voucher transaction is shown below.


When posting to a job activity, you must use the ledger code jc. The Account/Job.Act/Product field must be a pre-existing activity. In our example, we charged the activity 8900.100m, which is the activity for material costs in constructing the steel hull for the 20' pleasure boat for Mr. Smith. These costs are accumulated in the subsidiary ledger for job costs.
