The tab jobcosting displays all costs and revenues. This enables an overview of the profitability of the shipment. Cost and revenue is based on the master data sets; activity type, charge type and tariff rates, and these are applied according to the nature of the shipment for example the Incoterms used and the chargeable weight of the shipment. Jobcosting figures are generated automatically by input of payable vouchers and output of invoices and credit notes (More information is available in the section on Automatic tariffing). Expenditure and revenue accruals may also be manually inserted into job-costing, but it is intended that jobcosting should be largely automated.
