Using the Best Sellers Report

You can run a Best Seller report by choosing Best Sellers in the Other Reports screen. You can:

  • View your most profitable products, grouped by income account.
  • Change the date range of the report.
  • Save, print or email the report.

 

What does the report show?

The report shows your best selling products, grouped by income account. The table shows:

  • Qty sold - Quantity sold.
  • Sales - Financial value of sales (excluding tax).
  • Cost - Only stock products carry an associated cost in EasyBooks. The cost is calculated when each sale is entered as the average cost price per unit of stock unsold multiplied by the quantity sold.
  • Profit - Sales minus cost.
  • Margin (%) - The margin is calculated as (Sales - Cost) / Sales. 

    Note: Sales of services have no associated cost is EasyBooks, so achieve a margin of 100%.

 

How does EasyBooks pick the initial date range?

The Next Consolidation date specified in the Business Settings is used as the end date of the report. If this date has not yet passed, the report uses current date instead. If you've consolidated your profit and loss, the day afteryour last consolidation is used as the start date. Otherwise the date of the earliest transaction is used.
