What does COGS stand for?
COGS is short for "Cost of Goods Sold" which in essence is the claimable direct expense (cost) of creating all products (goods) you have sold within the financial year. The IRS requires all small manufacturers to submit this information annually via a form called 1040, or "Schedule C".
How do I calculate cost of goods sold?
The IRS sets out how it wants you to calculate this figure via the Schedule C form. You’ll need to know 6 different COGS calculations and then enter them on separate lines to get your final tally:
  1. 1. Start of Year Material Inventory Value
  2. 2. Purchases (Less Personal Use)
  3. 3. Cost of External Labor
  4. 4. Materials & Supplies (these are not your materials in most small business cases as they are factored into 1 and 6)
  5. 5. Other Costs (Overheads)
  6. 6. End of Year Material Inventory Value

Craftybase will calculate the tallies you need for this filing.
