The cost center is a place where costs are incurred or a service is provided. This can be formed according to various aspects, such as space, function, area of responsibility, etc.
In xentral, liabilities can be posted to cost centers. For this purpose assign a cost center directly to the liability in the detail view. All liabilities can be exported via the FiBu export and the cost centers are shown in an additional column.
This module is especially relevant when accounting is done in xentral.
All created cost centers are listed in the overview.
With a click on the button "+NEW" an input tab appears, in which more detailed information can be entered.
The cost center provides the following fields:
- Number → Corresponds to the number of the cost center. Mandatory field!
- Name → Here you can enter a meaningful name for the cost center. This then appears when entering as a live search and is intended to be represent an aid in finding the cost center
- Internal comment → A freely writable text field for short explanations
An item can be assigned a specific cost center in the item master under Details → Financial accounting. If the article is then used in a document (offer, order, etc.), this cost center will be used for the item.
Cost centers are used in the documents quotation, order, delivery bill and invoice. At the bottom right under "Settings" the cost center can be linked in each of these documents.
In each individual item of a document, the cost center can be reassigned, if, for example, the cost center of a particular order differs from the usual cost center of the item. The cost center then applies only to this item. All other items of the document can have a different cost center, or pull that of the document if none is entered here.
The cost center can be entered directly in the liability.
