Report Data Differences?

Report Data Differences?

Postby jgill823 » Wed Oct 25, 2017 3:01 pm

I am having some problems with report data. I run a report weekly to track sales and two reports don’t add up. I print a business summary report and a sales/ receipts summary. I am looking at the gross parts sales and gross labor sales on the business summary. I am looking at total parts and labor on the sales receipts summary. These numbers don’t match. Where does the data come from? I have tried to find out where the differences are but now luck. Is there a better report for gross sales figures?

Welcome to the forum and thanks for posting.

Not all report numbers are going to match; typically this is due to one report factoring something (fees, taxes, commissions, discounts, etc.) that the other report doesn't. I've attached a document that we share at our live workshops that covers the most common report differences and spells out these factors.

As for your request to know of the best report for your purposes, I'll leave that to your fellow shops to chime in on that.
