Calculating Profit from Unit Prices and Unit Costs

You can use this feature to adjust the Profit % field automatically when you enter a new price in the Unit Price field.

To Calculate Profit from Unit Prices and Unit Costs:

  1. Open the Item Card window.

  2. Browse to the item card that you want to calculate a new profit for, and then click the Invoicing tab.

  3. In the Price/Profit Calculation field, select Profit=Price-Cost.

  4. Click the Unit Price field, and enter a new price.

  5. The Profit % field will change to reflect the changes you made to the Unit Price field.


If you have placed a check mark in the Price Includes VAT field on the item card, remember that the program subtracts VAT from the unit price that you enter before it calculates the profit %. (The Price Includes VAT field is not included in the standard layout, but you can insert it with the design facilities.)
