Cost Data & Chart Template Guide
The first thing that you may notice about this template, once you have the document opened, is its only one page. That’s all you really need.
Scroll down to the main table of the document to start entering your various expenses. The first item that you need to enter is the cost center (expense) and the annual cost of that recurring item. The template will then take that information and give you the total percentage of your expenses that the item is taking up and the cumulative percentage as well.
You will see the totals for all the items you enter in this field at the very bottom of the Cost Data & Chart Template. If you need to add more spaces, just press the tab button with your mouse in the last cell in the bottom right corner.
Now, go back to the top of the page to see this information displayed in your bar and line graph above.
The yellow line of the graph shows the trend in your spending and the bars represent the different expenses. As your expenses increase, you will see the line adjust accordingly. Using this template you can see how some expenses will need to be changed in order to increase profit margins in the future of your business.
