There are a number of inbuilt reports within the Stison system that enable you to analyse your data. Navigating to Sales and Royalties > Royalties reports provides you with access to all of the reports. The first on the list is the Profit Loss report, and it is generated from the entered sales and royalties data.
Profit and loss takes all the sales on a title, calculates the royalties due on those sales, payments already made and finally pulls in any costs entered into the system within the Production module.
Profit = net sales value - (royalties due - payments) - (production costs + fixed costs)
If your advances are more than net sales values, the report will show as a loss.
When clicking on Profit Loss from the main Royalties Reports menu, you will be taken to this screen:
