Sales Profitability and Kits
I'm very new to all things Accounting and the Finance side of Acumatica, so this might be a elementary question, but we primarily sale items as Non-Stock kits. Our partner created a customization for us that "explodes" the kit items when we add the kit to a Sales Order (think they were inspired by another customization out there). Currently we've been assigning a price to the Kit, and 0 dollars to the items. When we run any 'Sales Profitability' report or Inquiry the 'Net Sales' are tied to all the non-stock Kits, but the costs are all with the items giving us margins of only 100% or 0%.
In 'Sales Order Preferences' under 'Sales Profitability Settings' there is the item 'Cost Calculation Basis for Non-Stock Kits' that I've set to 'Non-Stock Kit Standard Cost Plus Stock Component Cost'. I'm not sure how I'm misinterpreting this as it sound like the cost of the kits will include the cost of the items in it...however it doesn't seem to have any effect or add any cost to the Kits.
Any help pointing me to where I should start to generate reports that will consolidate our Kit and a component of it for Sales and Cost? We sell our main item and the kit is the bundle or accessories that you get from purchasing that item. Is this a situation for ARM reports, or should I work on some way in Report Designer or Generic Inquiries to group them? We're open to pricing our items on the Sales Order differently as well.
Thanks for any help!
