Overhead expenses include all additional, non-production costs. These are the costs to pay customs duties, courier services, storing or movement of products between the warehouses.
In Kladana you can add overhead expenses to the product cost. In this case, only the product cost changes, the transaction total amount is not affected. For example, if a customer receives a shipment of products with delivery, the transaction total amount is the sum of all product costs.
The option is available in the following sections:
- Purchases → Receivings,
- Sales → Shipments,
- Inventory → Transfers,
- Inventory → Stock Adjustments.
Overhead expenses adding
- In the Kladana workspace, select the section and transaction in which you want to add additional expenses.
- Specify the amount of the additional expenses in the Overhead expenses field. The cost per unit and the cost of all items automatically increases.
To see the changes, add the Overhead expenses column to the table. Otherwise, you won’t be able to track changes.
- Overhead expenses are distributed across all the items in proportion by the price, the weight or the volume of an item: the higher the indicator value, the greater the overhead expenses for the item. By default, overhead expenses distribution is based on the item price.
- To change the type of overhead expenses distribution, click on By the price next to the Overhead expenses field. In the drop-down menu, select the preferred type of distribution.
The distribution of overhead expenses by weight and volume is calculated correctly, if the product weight and volume are indicated in the product card.
