Topic: Bypassing inventory / cost of goods data
I have a consulting business where my accounting results only need to reflect the formula > consulting fees - operational expenses = net income. However, when I try to record my fee (sales) income, the script warns me that I should set up inventory products & prices.
Since I'm the only one that handles this consulting and the fee is dictated by open market and tradition, I do not need to subcontract consulting - thus I don't pay costs of services and the sum of all consulting fees becomes the gross income of my activity.
I wonder if I should create in order to trick the script a product with price = 0 ; however, I would still have to deal with the N° of units, since most probably the script would prevent me to sell something I haven't got in stock.
My question then would be how should I go about setting up this scenario.
