Creating subtotal items in QuickBooks for Mac
A subtotal item adds up the amounts of the items above it, up to the last subtotal. Create a
subtotal item if you want to apply a percentage discount to several items. Because QuickBooks
calculates percentages only on the line above, you need to subtotal the items before entering a
discount item that calculates on a percentage basis.
To create subtotal items:
1 Choose Lists > Items.
2 Click the + at the bottom of the list.
3 In the Type field of the New Item window, choose Subtotal.
4 Enter an item name, such as “Subtotal.”
5 Enter the description that you want QuickBooks to put on your sales forms when you
apply the subtotal.
6 Click OK.
