Is there a report that shows markup percentage for each inventory item


Hi ConnieHannah,

I hope your week is off to a good start. I've got just the report that'll show you the markup percentage for your items in QuickBooks Desktop.

The first step is to pull up the Item Profitability report in the Report Centre. The easiest way to find it is to use the search bar in the Report Centre window. This report will automatically show you the Actual Cost, Actual Revenue, and Difference (in dollar figures) for your items. Seeing the percentage only takes a moment of simple customizing.

  1. Click Customize Report in the top left of the report window.
  2. On the Display tab, go to the Columns section.
  3. Check the box for % Difference in the Add subcolumns for portion.
  4. Click OK.

You can uncheck the $ Difference, Act. Cost, and Act. Revenue options and add any other customization you'd like. As long as the % Difference box is checked, you'll see the markup percentage for your items.

Here's a great article all about customizing reports in QuickBooks Desktop if you'd like to take a look at it:

Let me know if that works for you. I'll be here if you need anything else.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
