You can also create Bills of Materials or Kit Item Codes with an unlimited number of components.

Up to three non-inventory additional costs associated with the Bill of Materials can be created, for example, labour, freight and overhead costs, per Bill of Material. When you manufacture you can remove component items and create manufactured items.

  • An audit trail

  • Components used in Bill of Materials / Kit Item Codes to track inventory items (components) allocated to a finished inventory item (manufactured product).
Fixed Assets
Fixed Assets*
Fixed assets are physical items such as desks, computers, cars, and machinery which you acquire to run your business. South African Company Law requires that you keep a register of your business' fixed assets as part of its accounting records. However, business fixed asset management can be tedious and time-consuming. As you use assets, they depreciate or become obsolete. You can legally expense depreciation in your accounts for tax purposes. Sage Pastel’s fixed asset tracking software module takes care of all of this for you.

Managing your fixed assets includes the following tasks:
  • Tracking each asset’s value, both from a tax and an accounting point of view
  • Depreciating assets correctly using an appropriate depreciation rate and method
  • Updating the replacement values of your fixed assets for insurance purposes
  • Maintaining an accurate fixed assets register which records information such as: date of purchase; date of disposal; purchase price; accumulated depreciation and net book value
  • The Fixed Assets software module automates all these processes for you
  • Once you provide the initial information, the fixed asset management system takes over and manages your assets for you. One of the realities of fixed assets processing is that companies frequently change depreciation rules as legislation allows and as company policy changes. Some changes are retroactive to when you purchased the asset. Sage Evolution Fixed Assets calculates its values dynamically from the start of each asset’s life, which makes retroactive changes simple. Imagine the time required to accurately programme all this yourself into a spreadsheet!
*Fixed Assets can be used in conjunction with the core Sage Evolution Accounting system or can be purchased as a stand-alone product

  • Ability to link users to one or more stores and prevent users from accessing items in other stores
