Read a department object.
In a business with multiple departments, a department is useful for tracking revenue and expenses associated with each department. You can sync your departments with your choice of accounting software or import using a CSV file.
For example, in your cake baking business with two departments - listed cakes and custom cakes, use a department to track revenue and expenses for each department.
In accounting practice, department and accounting class are used interchangeably to track revenue and expenses not maintained at the chart of accounts level.
In Intuit QuickBooks, classes map to departments in BILL. In Xero, the BILL department object is required for syncing successfully.
