Cost model no 1 input parameters
||Enter the labor cost (wages and salaries plus social security cost, if any).
To divide the labor cost in more detail, you can enter several rows, e.g. dividing the costs by "Managers," "Engineers," "Workers," etc.
|Enter the average number of days during which the wages and salaries are paid. Payments are reflected accordingly in the cash flow projections.
This is used to calculate values for the balance sheet item "Employee-related liabilities."
Employee-related liabilities = (Payment period, days x Personnel expenses) / 30
|Grant financing: financing level (%)
||When labor cost is covered by grant financing, enter the financing rate (%).
Financing rate reflects the relative share of labor cost that is covered by government assistance.
An alternative option is to enter grant financing directly, with absolute figures. To do this, you can use worksheet FINANCIAL PLAN > Revenue > Other operating revenue
|Grant financing: collection period
|Enter the estimated number of days from incurring the expenditures to the receipt of grant financing. Accordingly, the receipt of support is recorded in the income statement (item "Other operating revenue") and cash flow statement.
Cost model no. 2 input parameters (those that differ)
|Wages and salaries
||Enter the cost of wages and salaries (as gross wages).
To divide the cost of wages better, you can enter personnel expenses on several
rows, e.g. dividing by "Managers", "Engineers", "Workers", etc, or by business departments.
|Social security costs (%)
||Enter the social security tax rate subject to gross wages (%).
This indicator can be used to calculate various costs for the employer, calculated on gross wages (social tax, unemployment insurance, etc).
Cost model no. 3 input parameters (those that differ)
|Enter the number of employees in a business or its department.
In case of a larger business, you should first enter job titles, e.g. "Managers," "Engineers," "Workers," etc. and then show the number of people in each work group. You can also classify by departments.
