Last Cost Price

Giving overview how WMS calculates Landed Price / Last Cost

Updated over a week ago


This article gives an overview how WMS calculates last Cost and why it may show a different value than your accounting system.

Detail Steps

Case 1

The CloudWMS holds the last replicated cost from your accounting system. If the value is showing incorrectly you may need to run a system replication.

Case 2

Your items are setup with GST buying tax code but you normally purchase your items tax free.

  • Accounting software Last Purchase price shows as $1.067014

  • Tax Code When Bought is set to GST (Goods and Service Tax) 10%

  • In WMS Item shows as $0.9700

Why does WMS and MYOB show different Last Cost?

  • The buying code on the item in the accounting system is GST.

  • When reading the item details from the accounting system the WMS is unable to see if the Last Purchase for the item used the GST tax code.

  • The system has to assume the tax code on the item was used.

  • WMS uses the price provided less 10% tax (1.067014/1.1=0.9700127272)


Update the items default tax buying code in your accounting system to N-T/Free if you usually buy those items tax free.
