Direct operating expenses

Hello,


Is trash removal and/or utilities a part of direct operating expenses, and entered into BACON under purchases?


Thanks!

Nope and Nope.  A direct operating expense is an item used directly in the production of your main offerings, but is NOT a cost of good sold.  Trash pickup and utilities are fixed.  If you sell 100 burgers or 200 burgers you don't use more gas or spend more on trash. 

So Ryan where would you enter your fixed cost??? Like Lease. Do I just create it under Expense uncontrollable?

I have the same question as Shalamar. What categories would be used for expenses like, rent, insurance, alarm company, gas and electric bill, etc.. 

I have a technical question - for some reason, and just for one of my locations, I can't seem to get a DOE budget to populate when I generate a budget.

I HAVE SAME QUESTION. BUT I DONT SEE ANY ANSWER HERE. ALSO WHERE CAN I INPUT ALL DELIVERY COMPANY SALES.

Fixed costs can be entered in BACON as non-controllable costs, they are the same thing we just call them non-controllable in BACON.  You can create any account you want on the accounts page, then categorize the account as a non-controllable.  If that is not the answer you were looking for, please let me know more specifically so we can address it.
