There are several key cost reports in vintrace that this page will detail so that you can determine an accurate Cost of Goods Sold (COGS) for your accounting package.
- Cost Detail Report (bulk and stock)
- Inventory stock report with costing (bulk and stock)
- Wine/Juice Costing (bulk only)
- Bulk Cost Summary (bulk only)
Cost Detail Report (bulk and stock)
From any wine or stock costing tab, you will notice a Costing report button.
This will produce a detailed PDF cost breakdown showing the individual cost categories as well as a per unit cost. You will also see a history of all cost events that have impacted the wine or stock.
Inventory stock report with costing (bulk and stock)
To see costing information across multiple bulk wines, finished goods, dry goods or chemicals, you can use the Inventory stock report located under Reports – Inventory.
It would be most typical to run this report at the end of a month as it creates a snapshot of your inventory as of the close of business.
This report exports as a PDF or CSV so you can readily manipulate for import into a third-party system. By default only a unit cost and total cost are provided however you can select the Breakout costing option (only available for the CSV output format) to show a column for each costing category (Overheads, Storage, Additions etc). By using the Stock type and/or Stock category you can limit the output to just a particular set of inventory items i.e. Stock type = Wine Batch will show just bulk wine.
There are additional filters available: Include zero-level stock, Group by stock code and Include inactive stock items. Use of one or more of these extra switches will expand the number of stock items included in the report.
Note: the Group By options are only available when using the PDF output.
