    Hi @[Petra Zeliskova]​ 


    Thanks for getting in touch on our community page.


    You have a couple of options for depending on your preference when managing your margins.


    1. If you do not wish oil to affect your cost of sales (COS), as you do not build this into recipes, you may wish to treat this as a consumable (eg napkins) and not include this is in your COS/GP calculations. If this is the case, you can exclude this from your GP calculation on the edit product page.
    2. If you do wish to include the cost of the product in your GP calculations, a quick and easy way to manage this is through wastage templates. You can pre-populate a figure on a template (ie your typical weekly wastage for oil), and then all the site managers/chefs need to do is simply open the template and approve it on a weekly basis.

    You will be able to find more information on how to create a template on Enterprise and managing them at site level using the following links with the Fourth Community:



    I hope this helps

    Many thanks
