Commissions Payable

If you have entered a list of sales clerks and their sales commission percentage and have entered the clerks initials in the sales, then the Jewelry Shopkeeper will calculate the commissions due to the clerks. This figure is the total of all the commissions due on sales where the sales are not marked as having been paid. To see a detailed listing of the commissions due in this figure, run a commissions report from the Reports Menu. If you want to mark sales as having had their commission paid, choose the Commissions Report option, choose the Pay Commissions option. Choose Yes next to each sale you want to mark as paid. At the end of each clerk choose YES to pay this clerk and enter the check number used to pay the commissions. If you have already paid the commissions or do not want the program to create the commissions check, still choose YES to pay this clerk, but choose NO to update the bank balance. If you have not paid the commissions and want the program to create the commissions check and update the bank balance, choose YES to update the bank balance.
