Price by Cost plus a percentage or Amount

By | October 27, 2014

Selling Price of product is an important component for any entrepreneur because price is one of the factors which decides the profitability. Hence, it becomes very important when we set pricing of the material or services.

Sage ERP 300 allows you to set the validation to item pricing based on the item cost.

With the help of this blog we will let you know how the Selling price of an item can be checked automatically in Order Entry screen of sage 300 ERP as per following two requirements:

  1. Unit Price = Unit Cost + defined percentage of Unit cost.
  2. Unit Price = Unit Cost + some Fixed amount

Let’s take an example of an item A1-102/0 having Costing Method as ‘Moving Average’ as shown below:

1

This item has Quantity on hand which equals to 22 and Average Cost equals to 200 in Location Detail screen available in Inventory Movement module.

Now, to use this functionality, first create a new Price list code in sage 300 ERP with logical name and required configuration by navigating to Inventory Movement >> I/C Setup >> Price List Codes. And, then attach that Price list code to the item in item pricing screen which you can find in Inventory Control >> I/C Item>> I/C Item Pricing.

Lets consider Price by a Cost plus Percentage where your check should be on Unit Price and Check base should be ‘Cost plus a percentage’ in Price check tab of item pricing screen. Selecting this check base will ask you the range of percentage which you need to consider at the time of item price check as shown below:

Depending on the Price check type, your system will acknowledge it. For example in this case, the system will only give you the warning if the Unit Price entered in Order Entry screen will not match as per defined criterions.

 In below screen, we have entered Unit price as 240 which is not in the range as per our requirement because our Unit Price should be Unit Cost (200) plus percentage of Unit cost (0-20) which will come out between 200 and 220.

Next, moving to Price by a Cost plus Fixed Amount your check should be on Unit Price and Check base should be ‘Cost plus a Fixed Amount’ in Price check tab of item pricing screen. Selecting this check base will ask you the range of Fixed Amount which you need to consider at the time of item price check as shown below:

1

Here, our system will again throw a warning message if we take Unit price as 200 because our Unit Price should be Unit Cost (200) plus Fixed amount (10 to 20) which will come out between 210 and 220.

Similarly, Unit Price check can be done on only Fixed Amount by selecting Check Base as “Fixed Amount” in Item Pricing screen
