How should bookkeeping for a tile setting business account for cost of materials and labor?

The bookkeeping for a tile setting business should account for the cost of materials and labor precisely and systematically. These costs are usually categorized as Cost of Goods Sold (COGS).

Cost of Materials: This should include the cost of all the tiles and other materials used for setting tiles. Keep detailed records of every purchase made. All invoices and receipts should be properly filed and recorded.

Labor Costs: The cost of labor should include all wages paid to employees, including overtime pay, bonuses, and benefits. It's also necessary to account for any subcontracted work.

Both of these costs directly influence the profitability of the tile setting business and are essential for calculating gross profit, which is a key financial indicator of a business's operational performance. Accurate bookkeeping ensures you can track these costs and make proactive business decisions.
