A sales report enables you to track the commercial performance of your company over a specific period of time. Sales reports can be prepared daily, weekly, monthly or quarterly depending on the type of business you are in. Our sales report template has a daily frequency but can easily be customised.
Sales report are most useful when the current performance is compared to both a target and a past reference period. Our free sales report template enables you to track your revenues against a budget and a past reference period.
The reference period is usually the previous month for non-seasonal businesses and the same month of the preceding year for seasonal trades. The idea here is to compare the current sales against the most recent comparable period.
Our sales report template also includes a comparison of the Year To Date (or YTD) performance. This allows you to get a more global view of the business by analysing this year's performance compared to your budget.
