Expenses in tracezilla

tracezilla makes it easy to keep track of your expenses when you process and trade food. You can attach expenses to an order, a delivery or a specific lot. When the expense is attached, it will be included in the calculation of the lot value.

If the expense is attached to an entire order or delivery, the expense will be distributed on the different lots on the order or delivery based on net weight.

How is the actual cost price distributed on the order when an expense is attached?

When you attach an expense to an order a category is selected. The category has an impact on how the cost price is distributed.

Expenses regarding shipping, payroll and analysis are distributed on lots according to weight so that the largest cost will appear on the lot with the highest weight. The costs regarding the remaining categories are broken down by price.


Special circumstances regarding the category Purchase

When creating a lot line on a purchase order a unit price is entered. This price is the expected amount which is used as a distribution key when the expense category is Purchase.

This means that if the total amount for a purchase order is DKK 1,200 and there are two lots on the order with the entered expected price of resp. DKK 500 and DKK 700, then the price will also be distributed as follows when the expense is linked to the total purchase order.

In case the expense is slightly higher on the actual invoice (received at a later stage) than the entered expected amount eg. DKK 1,250 in stead of 1,200, the expense will be distributed resp. 520.83 kr and 729.17 kr.

  • DKK 700 constitutes 58.33% of the original total amount of DKK 1,200.
  • DKK 500 constitutes 41.67% of the original total amount of DKK 1,200.

The same percentage ratio is used to calculate how much is to be distributed on the individual lot.
