Overview

After your initial sync between SME & QuickBooks, you will see some "SMP_" Items in your QuickBooks Item List as shown in the image below.

These items are pass through items that will be used when there is not a corresponding QuickBooks item. Any income & expense that encompasses an SMP_<Itemname> for any account came through a SQLink pass through item.


For example, if you have an inventory item in SME but you don’t have it in QuickBooks, then SQLink will pass the income through the SMP_Item when you invoice that inventory item.

SMP_Labor

When scheduling labor in SME, you will usually be selecting a service item and income for that labor will pass through the income on the service item.
SMP_Labor will be used to pass income to your income accounts if:
- You do not select a service item in the Labor Editor in SME.
- The service item you select in the Labor Editor in SME is not in QuickBooks.
- The invoice is a fixed rate type invoice, labor will passed through SMP_Item.

Open the SMP_Labor item in QuickBooks and set the income account you use for labor.


If you schedule subcontractors and you are setting SME up to send bills to QB for your subcontractor cost, then check “This service is used in assemblies or is performed by a subcontractor or partner” and set the Expense account for labor.

If you don't charge tax on labor, set non-taxable in SME also.
1. Go to SME Inventory module > Services
2. Search for the service item called SMP_Labor
3. Locate the Non-taxable checkbox. Check if you don't charge tax on labor here too.

SMP_Service

- If you have a service item in SME that isn’t in QuickBooks, the income will be passed through the SMP_Service item.
- If you are using a Fixed Rate service order, the income for the fixed service amount will pass through the SMP_Service item on the invoice.

Open the SMP_Service item in QuickBooks and make sure the income account is set to the income account you use for that type of service.


If you are using subcontractors on services and you are sending bills to QB for what you owe the sub, make sure you check “This service is used in assemblies or is performed by a subcontractor or partner” and set the expense account used for the sub expense account. See Default Export to QuickBooks Settings for more information.


If you would rather use a different default item, you can set that in SQLink > File > Setup > Invoice/Proposal Options tab.
