    They send me a reccord of what they do. I suppose i could just add them as a vendor. But is there a simpler way?

    If they are a subcontractor or contractor you hire they should send a bill along with that record. Not your job to track their time, sure monitor it of course. If you don't use quick books, I encorage you to do so or use another like bookkeeping program. Enter their bills as they come in, automatic tracking of what you owe.

    Did you even read the title of the thread?

    Since I (in your opinion) am off base, what is your response to the op's question?

    Post their invoice into the program (Quickbooks) and pay accordingly.

    birddseedd mentioned in this title, that he's seeking a way to keep track of the sub within Quickbooks.

    . I read the title post as a question. I also suggested quick books the same as you are now suggesting. You obviously did not read my reply thoroughly. There are times we all, myself included, need to thoroughly digest a post before jumping in with a response. This is my last post on this matter.
