Add an assembled item of the Product type

You can add an assembled item of the Product type. In Product, you specify whether you want to track the stock or not. If so, Profit only tracks the stock at the level of the assembled item of the Product type. Profit does not track the stock of the parts of the assembled item of the Product type. You can however, track the stock of these parts (articles) via the manual stock entries such as enter stock, etc.

You use an assembled item to record what is necessary to produce the article without this having an effect on the stock of the 'parts' of the product. Thus, with this type of assembled item, you only record the raw materials, decorations and half-finished goods that are required together with their quantities. In the assembled item, you can also include information, such as labels and packaging material, and production indicators, such as employee and machine hours. In the specific case of bakeries, Dough will also be included as a part of the assembled item.


For a 'product' assembled item, the following applies:

  • The Track stock field is active.  You can specify whether you want to track the stock of the assembled item or not.
  • You cannot change the Price determination field.
  • A production article cannot consist of a variable assembled item.

To add a 'product' assembled item:

  1. Go to: Order Management / Item / Assembled item.
  2. Click on: New
  3. Enter an Item code and a Description.
  4. Select the Changeable description check box if, for example, you still want to be able to change the description when adding an order.
  5. Select the Article group the article belongs to. Per article group, you record how Profit should process purchases and sales in Profit Financieel.
  6. If applicable, select a Location.
  7. Select the Track stock check box if you want to track the stock of the article in your warehouse.

    You can only select this check box if in the article group linked the Contains stock items check box has been selected.

  8. Enter the Number of decimals that is used to display quantities on an order or invoice line.


    If stock is present and you change the number of decimal places, you cannot change it back!

  9. Select the Basic unit. You can record order lines in this basic unit and it is used for the stock valuation. You can later on deviate from the basic unit, if necessary.
  10. If applicable, enter a Price factor other than 1. The price factor determines whether the price is for one article or for several; so if the price factor is 100, the price is divided by 100 if you only sell 1 article.

    You might use a price factor, for example, if you are selling small articles in large packaging. The actual price for a paperclip could be € 0.0001, but you sell them per 1000 at a price of 10 euro cents. In that case you enter 1000 as the price factor.

  11. Select the VAT rate group. Based on this, among other things, Profit determines the VAT for the invoice.
  12. In Assembled item type, select Product.
  13. Add the parts.
  14. Go to the tab: Stock if you track the stock for this assembled item of the Product type. The settings only apply to the assembled item, not to the articles that make up the parts.
  15. In Stock profile, select a combination of settings for the stock check and replenishment, and the order proposal and allocation.

    By default, Profit supplies a number of common stock profiles. You can also add your own stock profiles.

    If you are using the stock replenishment stock profile to keep the stock at the correct level, enter the minimum stock and the level up to which Profit should replenish the stock.

  16. If you did not select a stock profile, complete the fields for checking and replenishing the stock.
  17. If your settings match the settings in one of the default stock profiles, Profit automatically links the stock profile.
  18. Go to the tab: Extra.
  19. Select a value for Purchase contact. This is mandatory in some cases.
  20. Select a Barcode type if you want to identify the assembled item using a barcode.
  21. Enter a value in Barcode.
  22. Go to the tab: Article type.
  23. Select a value for 'CBS' goods code. This is mandatory in some cases.
  24. Click on: Finish
