Hi, many small businesses such as cafes do not track inventory. I cannot see how to simply set up to show COGS separate to Operating Expenses so you have Sales, less COGS (Opening Stock + Purchases, less Closing Stock) = Gross Profit, less Expenses = Net Profit, Where maybe Opening & Closing Stock can be entered as a journal entry whenever they do a stocktake ? Monitoring your Gross Profit Margin is very important and unless I (and my clients) can do that I cant see the value in recommending this program to them.(I am a Small Business Advisor).
To explain further, sales are simply recorded as a total cash sales for the day, and all stock purchases simply as Purchases.
