How do you guys allocate labor to each job? Materials is easy but for those of you that have crews- do you charge the employee labor to the actual jobs? What is your process? Say you do 2 jobs- Smith and Jones. 1 receipt for 20 bales of pinestraw at Home Depot. 15 bales for Smith and 5 bales to Jones. You can code this receipt very easy and allocate to the two jobs. The 2 employees who did both jobs each worked 30 hours and got paid 300 each for that week. 20 hours at Smith and 10 at Jones. Total payroll 600 for the week (to keep it easy). When your payroll package shows up, how do you allocate the $600 so that their labor gets charged to the 2 jobs? No dumb replies OK- this example is easy. I'm trying to come up with a system to allocate a dozen employees doing maintenance, install, fertilization, etc,. I have an accounting degree so the data entry is easy- the SYSTEM for getting the accurate information efficiently is my question. SO- How does your operation work? Does the crew leader/supervisor allocate the time by job for entry into the computer? Who approves the material invoices/receipts? How does the labor and material make it to COGS for each job?
