The Profit by Sales Representative Report for December 2018 shows nil COGS for an invoice, yet the Job Costing Profit and Loss Report for December 2018 shows Expenses (i.e. job costs). Why aren't the job costs reported as COGS in the Profit by Sales Representative Report?
This happens when an invoice is actually a service sale. COGS are not assigned to a service item as price is essentially the cost of the item. Thus it can be viewed on the "Job Costing Profit and Loss Report" but not in the COGS column of "Profit by Sales Representative Report".
I am trying to complete the Job Costing profit and Loss report however there is no income showing up on most jobs.
Completion date is needed on the job for the income to be computed. If it is yet to be completed, you can still set it to current date and save job to see profit on the Job Costing Profit & Loss Report. Status can be left as In Progress.
I have run this report, but it isn’t showing the invoices raised against the job only the costs.
Invoices using New Quote in the Job are not automatically included in the Job Costing Profit and Loss Report - it is merely a convenient way to select correct customer in new sale. These invoices must be linked to the Job before they appear in the report. Use "Link expenses to an existing invoice" option to do this.
