Configure Cost Codes and Cost Types in Procore Estimating


To set cost codes and cost types for adjustments such as profit, discounts, and tax.

'Remove Cost Types' Setting for Projects Integrated with QuickBooks


If your account is integrated with QuickBooks®, you should NOT configure cost codes and types on the Cost Codes / Types page of Company Settings. Since QuickBooks only recognizes the Other cost type, this is the only cost type that can be used. 

Instead, please enable the 'Remove Cost Types' setting described below. This disables the ability to break down the cost types, and all items will be labeled with the Other cost type. This setting is not retroactive, meaning that you will need to create a new estimate with the setting enabled in order to send the estimate to the budget with the Other cost type that is compatible with QuickBooks.

  1. Under Company Settings, click Cost Codes / Types.
  2. Click the toggle ON next to 'Remove Cost Types for Procore Export for QuickBooks Linked Projects'.
  3. Click Save.
