Purchase Price Variance Report
The Purchase Price Variance Report shows the variance between the purchase price on the purchase order and standard cost for all items you receive and deliver into inventory and work in process. Inventory records purchase price variance on delivery into a subinventory. Work in Process records purchase price variance on delivery into a job or repetitive schedule. For internal requisitions, the purchase order ship to location is associated with the organization in the Customers window. See: Assigning a Business Purpose to a Customer Address.
The purchase price variance is calculated as the quantity received multiplied by the difference between the purchase order price and the standard cost.
Since this report displays purchase price variances for standard costing, this report is appropriate only for organizations using Inventory and standard costing. If you use Work in Process, this report also displays the outside processing purchase price variance.
In the Cost and Period Close Reports (for Inventory) or Submit Requests windows, select Purchase Price Variance Report in the Name field.
