The Labour Cost and Sales Report is a great tool to view your actual labour cost vs scheduled cost, and actual sales vs your sales percentage (once you've entered your actual sales in the Sales tab).
When running the Labour Cost and Sales Report, it will always auto-include Earnings and Deductions, unless you've unchecked the box.
Looking at Feb 4th, here is a detailed breakdown of the information on the report:
- Viewing Actual Sales vs Forecasted Sales
The first box on the report is the Sales Summary by Revenue Centres. Here you can view your actual sales vs your budget (forecasted) sales.
- Viewing Actual Labour Cost vs Scheduled Labour Cost
The report further breaks down actual labour hours (approved hours) vs budgeted hours.
- Labour Summary by Department
This chart breaks down labour by department. It compares actual labour to total actual sales. The variance in brackets () is the amount you've saved when comparing actual labor to budget (forecasted) labor.
- Labour Summary by Cost Center
This chart breaks down labor by Cost Center. Again, it compares actual labor to total actual sales. The variance in brackets () is the amount you've saved when comparing actual labor to budget (forecasted) labor.
- Labour Summary by Position
This chart breaks down actual labor vs budget (forecasted) labor by position. Here, if you have marked off "Include Earnings and Deductions", the entries will also be included.
For example, if you had added an retroactive pay entry of 5 hours for $100 for a Manager, the total hours will be 22.11 and the amount will be $500.74 ($400.74 +$100).
In this chart, the actual labor is also compared to individual Revenue Centers, and to Total Actual Sales.
