The cost of sales is also called as the cost of goods sold and it is related to the manufacturing or purchasing of a good that is sold to a customer.The cost of sales can be calculated in two ways.First you can adjust the cost of the goods purchased or manufactured by changing the inventory during a given period.Then you can also add the cost of goods purchased or manufactured to the inventory at the beginning of the period and subtract the inventory of goods at the end of the period.

First consider cost of sales for service or product .

for product final price is MRP. which has included tax. for service we have to define service type and apply cost for it and then after service provider can add govt taxes.
