QB for Electrical Contractor

I have just started bookkeeping for an electrical contractor who sells electrical supplies and provides professional labor.

The QB set up doesn't seem to have the income statement layout that I would like to see.
My preference would be to have sales followed by cost of sales then service revenue followed by expenses.

Is there a different company set up that I can use?

Also, we have a sales and use tax. I'm a little familiar with the sales tax but I'm not sure how the use tax gets in the sales tax report.

I last question, I'm using QB Pro 2007 and am thinking about upgrading to QB Pro 2010, is that the way I should go?

Thanks,

Ben
