Deducting Business Cost from Payroll Commissions is a feature within Vagaro that allows you to better manage your payroll for commission-based employees and booth renters. Once the feature has been configured, it will tell the system to deduct the cost to business prior to applying the commission percentages. The percentage is calculated on the net of the service. This determines the payment the service provider receives. For instance, if the service cost of a cut, color, and blow-dry is $50.00 and the Cost to Business is $10.00, the service provider will earn $40 in commission.
The system will do the following:
Price Charged for Service - Business Cost(s) = Net Earnings.
Net Earnings X Commission % = Employee's Pay.
