The sales detail report provides line-by-line detail of sales orders. It can be used for viewing profit margins on
The sales detail report provides both an estimated and actual profit made on sales.
- Estimated profit
Before items are shipped the profit is calculated using an estimated cost of sales value. Brightpearl uses the FIFO costing method so the actual cost won't be known until the item is shipped. The estimated cost is taken from the cost price list assigned to the order.
- Actual profit
Once items have been shipped the actual cost using FIFO is known. This value will be used to calculate the profit value seen on the sales detail report (and the order cost tab).
To view only actual profit, filter the report by invoiced and shipped items.
