This article will explain the Category Type: Labor / Labour   



Category Type - Labor / Labour 


Labor / Labour Category is what you would assign to your Labor / Labour codes or to relevant Transaction Types 


As a default, your Blackpurl would have been setup with 1 x Labor / Labour Category but you can have more than one Labor / Labour Category for reporting purposes


These additional Labor / Labour Categories can all be directed to the same General Ledgers in your accounting package or each Category can be assigned different General Ledgers in your accounting package dependant on your business’ needs 


For Labor / Labour Categories you will need to indicate an Income General Ledger / Cost of Goods Sold General Ledger 



A Labor / Labour Category is then assigned to a Labor / Labour Code






When that Labor / Labour Code is used on a Customer Order :


  • the income will be allocated to the nominated General Ledger that is shown in the Categories Income GL field


  • the COGS will be allocated to the nominated General Ledger that is shown in the Categories COGS GL field
