One thing that seems to keep going up is
fuel costs, and your vendors may be charging you
more and more in the meantime. It is important that
you keep up with your business. You'd be surprised that
many of your customers will not question supporting
you by including a fuel charge on your invoices.
This is how you do it:
1. Create an item in Miscellanous Parts or Miscellaneous
Labor. The Part ID can be anything, but the Description
must have the word "surcharge" somewhere within.
The price will be the percentage. For example, 4.00
will be 4% surcharge. You can make many of these at
different rates, up to you.
2. After you have completed adding all parts to your
invoice (or work order), add the part you created in
#1. This will calculate a surcharge and apply it to
the item total based upon the current subtotal of the
invoice. NOTE: if you change the invoice dollar
amounts, the surcharge amount WILL NOT change.
You will need to remove and re-add the surcharge item
so it can recalculate.
Comments: Requests from several customers in particularly
high fuel cost areas were made for developing this type
of feature. We may continue to add enhancements to this
feature, depending upon customer requests. If you have
any ideas for the software, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
