Miscellaneous Items

SI 2018 Page.png



Misc. Items are Items that do not exist in your SI 2018 Catalog. You create them on a per Project basis if you want to add untaxed Items to a Project. These are generally used for things like shipping charges or travel time.


These display on SI 2018 reports and are added to the total project number after taxes have been applied to all other items. No tax is applied to Misc. Items.

This means that if you delete/add Products or Labor Items that the Miscellaneous Item will recalculate its value.
