equipment overhead faq Budget: Does equipment I have at the yard and trucks like the owner's truck or sales vehicles go in the equipment budget?

No, these types of equipment go the overhead budget.  The reason:  you wouldn't include these pieces of equipment in an estimate.  

Because you're not estimating this equipment, it's not getting recovered directly in estimates therefore it must be in your overhead budget so that these costs get recovered as part of your overhead markups.

Whoops, I accidentally put them in Equipment! How do I fix this?

If you accidentally included it in your equipment budget, don't worry - it's easy to fix!

Simply go into your equipment budget and click the ACTION button beside the equipment that you put in equipment instead of overhead.  Choose the option to Move to Overhead and it will automatically move it to the equipment section of your overhead budget.
