We use Sage 300 and are having the same problem in not knowing exactly how to allocate expense to the jobs as in depreciation , vehicles and expenses, safety , computer licenses, human resource, administration expense etc. Also how are the costs allocated, as a percentage of the job? Is there any help or class out there in a step by step instructions on how
To accomplish this? In other words how to decrease the expense on your income statement and move that expense to your jobs. I would appreciate any suggestions from the group.
To handle the direct costs from our pre-fab shop, we created a phase code in the Phase Master. The shop foreman codes the crew time to the jobs, any job without this code gets it added. We charge it directly to the job this way. If your question is more about indirect shop costs, I recommend just doing a standard allocation using manhours or revenue or other indicator of shop use.
