Flat Rate Employees: How Commission is Earned on Billable Hours
This article explains how Flat Rate Employees earn commission on billable hours in Stocktrac®.
NOTE: This document assumes “Tech Pay Equals Labor Charge” is not checked (see Configuration module, Custom Settings, Miscellaneous tab).
How it Works
- Flat rate employees are always affected by labor pay. If the labor pay amount equals zero, a tech will not be given credit for a job
- If the inventory part has a labor charge in inventory but no labor pay, the tech will not be credited for the part.
- If the inventory part does not have a labor charge and does not have labor pay, the tech will not be credited for the part. However, if a labor amount is entered on the estimate, the labor charges will be equal to the labor pay.
- Custom items labor charges will always equal labor pay.
For each Flat Rate Profile under Employees – Setup – Flat Rate Profiles, there are two check box options.
One is to “Adjust Flat Rate in Package” Sales. This will cut down a tech’s pay if a package is created on an estimate (assuming the labor is being discounted by the package).
The second check box is “Adjust Flat Rate for Discounts”. This option assumes that if a discount is created in the jobs tab of Point of Sale and the check box for “Discount Labor” is checked, the tech’s pay will be incremented by the amount of the discount.
