Determining your business profit now


Yesterday I showed you how to get sales figures and was stunned that many were interested, but what they wanted as well was the gross profit figures; gross profit is why the shop exists. Not a problem; you can get your figure instantly.

You can instantly obtain your figures instantly.

Here is how you do it.

Go to cash register reports.

Select in sales

Dissection Sales /Profitability for a given period

Now run this report for the last 12 months


What you get is the profit, measured in both dollars and your margins.

The final row is what I highlighted. This displays the scanning issues you are having, which I also advise you to look at.
