Example 1 - You want to track company sales by salesperson for commission purposes. Set up a distribution code for each salesperson whose sales you will be tracking. When posting invoices, distribute the amount subject to commission to the appropriate salesperson by his/her designated distribution code. Then, create a report (Crystal Reports) that will show each salesperson's accumulated sales amounts and calculate the commission due each person.
Example 2 - Another common use for miscellaneous distributions is city business tax. In most cases city business taxes are paid annually or semi-annually. By distributing invoiced amounts subject to city business tax, you can keep a record of your taxable amounts. Then, create a report that gives you an accounting of taxable amounts. When you are ready to pay your business taxes, you can run the report to generate the accumulated taxable amounts for each city to which you owe a business tax and calculate the amounts due.
