  • Confirm that the software can track all vehicle purchases including cost, quantity ordered and relevant charges paid (import duty).
  • The software should create room for relevant auto inventory transactions like automated invoicing and receipt as well as organise your inventory by brands.
  • The software should also track all income earned from auto repair and maintenance services
  • The software should also track all expenses incurred for a specified period.
  • If you buy from foreign suppliers, the software should also track exchange rate movements, foreign transaction payment and do the relevant conversion which will be reported in your home country’s currency.

  • VAT deductions should also be accounted for and relevant account payable balances.
  • Confirm that the software can generate profit or loss trend, sales made, expenses incurred, cash flow and statement of financial position for a specified period.
