Extending Price, Markup, and Discount Calculations

When a company needs to use a specific price, markup, or discount for a particular product, Garage Hive gives the possibility to do so, and even set specific filters, like location, make, vehicle age, and so on. These prices, markups, and discounts supersede the standard prices available in an item or labour card.

Extending sales prices calculations

To specify sales price for specific product(s):

  1. In the top-right corner, choose the search icon, enter Sales Prices V16, and choose the related link. V16 is an abbreviation for Version 16, which was the version when this feature was released.

  2. There are three statuses on the Sales Prices V16 page lines:
    • Draft: For use when you want to edit the lines.
    • Active: For use when you want to go live with the prices.
    • Inactive: For use when you want to disable and archive the line.

    Choose Draft status when editing the lines.

  3. On the lines, specify the Applies-to Type, and Applies-to No. which defines who the price should apply to.
  4. Then add the Product Type, and the Product No. which determines what product the price should apply to.
  5. In this case, we’ll set the Applies-to Type as All Customers (no need to add Applies-to No. as all customers customers are covered), Product Type as Labour, and the Product No. as LAB- Standard Labour Rate.

  6. There are several filters that you can use, to be more specific when applying the prices. You can specify the Location Code, Make Code or Primary Make Code for the price.

  7. You can also use the Minimum Vehicle Age and Maximum Vehicle Age to filter on how to apply the price according to the age of the vehicle. The vehicle age is calculated from the Vehicle First Registration Date field in the Vehicle card.

  8. Add the Starting Date and Ending Date for the price, which means the price will only be valid for the specified period (this is optional).

  9. Enter the Unit of Measure Code (if you use Product Type as Item or Resource) for the Product No. you selected (where applicable), followed by the Minimum Quantity to apply the price and the Unit Price to use.
  10. You can also specify other fields such as Allow Line Disc., which means that this price can be used with the discount in the document lines, Price Includes VAT, which means that the price includes VAT, and so on.


  11. When done editing, make the status to be Active from the first column.

  12. The prices set up will now be active for use.

  6. There are several filters that you can use, to be more specific of how to apply the markup. You can specify the Location Code, Make Code or Primary Make Code for the markup.

  7. You can also use the Minimum Vehicle Age and Maximum Vehicle Age to filter on how to apply the price according to the age of the vehicle. The vehicle age is calculated from the Vehicle First Registration Date field in the Vehicle card.

  8. Add the Starting Date and Ending Date for the markup, which means the markup will only be valid for the specified period (this is optional).

  9. Enter the Minimum Quantity, Minimum Unit Cost and Maximum Unit Cost to apply the sales markup (this is also optional).

  10. Add the Markup Type to be either Amount or Percent, the Markup Base to be either Unit Cost (which is the unit cost in related purchase item ledger entries or Item card) or Unit Cost in Document (which is the unit cost in the document line).
  11. Specify the Markup Value depending on the Markup Type you used. In this case, we’ll use a 30% markup value for unit cost.

  12. You can also specify other fields, such as Minimum Markup Amount, which means that the markup amount should not be less than this amount, and Allow Line Discount, which means that the line discount in the document can be used for the price after the markup is set.

  13. Set the status to Active in the first column.
