tracezilla makes it easy to keep track of your expenses when you process and trade food.
You can attach expenses to an order, a delivery or a specific lot. When the expense is attached, it will be included in the calculation of the lots value.
If the expense is attached an entire order or delivery, the expense will be distributed on the different lots in the order or delivery based on net weight.
When you have attached the expense, it will appear on the order, delivery or lot when you click the tab Expenses in the bottom of the order.
To view all your expenses, select Financials > Expenses in the top menu.
Transfer of expenses from e-conomic
If you have an integration to the accounting system e-conomic, you can transfer your expenses from e-conomic.
- Click Pull from e-conomic.

If you don’t have an integration to e-conomic, you can create your expenses manually.

- Each expense line must be attached to an order, a lot or a delivery. Below the header Attach to in the table, you can click on Lot and select an order or delivery in the drop-down menu that opens.
- The expense could be an invoice from a forwarder concerning freight of several orders. In this case, you may prefer to have pre-selected a default category, as the expense lines probably all would be freight.

The purchase price that you entered when you created your purchase order is only for budget use. The final purchase price must be entered as an expense like all other expenses.
