How Do I Add A New Normal Cost?

This section describes how to add a new normal cost for an item.

1

Select the Items task from the Main Menu.

2

Start the Items option from the Items menu.

3

Find the item you want to add the cost to (press the Items button to start the search).

Use IPN or Description to narrow the search.

4

Click the Costs/Sells tab. The current costs are displayed in the Replenishment section. Click the New button btnSmallNew.gif (1125 bytes) in the Replenishment section.

  

5

Enter the Supplier/Order Code.

6

Enter the Location.

7

Enter the date this cost becomes effective. The system sets this date automatically to today but you can set it to any date in the future.

8

If you have the ex-tax cost of the item, move to the Cost Ex Tax column and enter the cost. The system automatically calculates the Cost Inc Tax. Alternatively, if you have the inc-tax cost, move to the Cost Inc Tax column and enter the cost. The system automatically calculates the Cost Ex Tax.

IMPORTANT: The Cost Ex Tax is the supplier's normal cost, excluding all trading terms, fees and taxes. The Cost Inc Tax is the supplier's cost to you, including all trading terms, fees and taxes.

9

Move to the Carton Size column and enter the number of units in one carton. If you buy the items singularly, then the carton size would be one. If you buy a carton of beer, the carton size would be 24 (twenty four stubbies in one carton).

10

In the Min Order Size column enter the minimum number of units that you can buy. This is normally the same as the carton size, meaning that you must buy a whole carton. If the supplier lets you buy one unit from a carton, then you would set this to one.

11

Click the Save button.
