High-level overview of Advanced Commissions:
First, the salesperson is tied to a commission plan. The plans are flexible and accommodate any business scenario. There are two types of commission plans:
- Flat Rate – the commission amount is calculated based on each invoice line.
- Quota – the commission amount is calculated when a dollar amount is reached.
These plans calculate commissions by either using the Expression Builder or through a Generic Inquiry. Next, the commissions are processed through a series of steps: Calculate, Approve, Process, and Pay.
When setting up a Commission Plan, you will first need to define the start and end date; whether it’s a flat or quota plan type; the payout type which is either immediately or on fully paid invoice; frequency of payouts; and which method to calculate the commission on – expression builder or a generic inquiry.
Expression Builder or Generic Inquiry to Calculate Commissions
Expression Builder: Most people choose to set up the calculations in the Expression Builder. It’s easy, flexible, and gives you plenty of options. With the Expression Builder, you chose a condition and then define a value.
Generic Inquiry: You can also use a Generic Inquiry (GI) result for your commissions. So, instead of a condition and a formula, you use a value from the GI and a rule. When using GIs for your commissions in Acumatica, there is a set of tables you need to use as the commissions module engine has to see the GI exactly. Additionally, the GI must contain the parameters for the Sales Person ID and the Commission Plan.
Once sales people and plans are set up, calculating commissions is automatic. Acumatica now easily processes commissions based on sales orders and with your approval, they are paid out.
