What is a summary report?
This report gives you an overview of your sales for a given time period. Your sales report should also show your cost of goods sold, gross profit, and quantities sold so you can have a better idea of how much money is actually going back to your business.
The sales summary report provides a more macro view of your retail sales. How much did you make last month or the previous month? What about your year-to-date sales compared to last year? These numbers offer some general insights around the health of your business, and they can inform your medium to long-term decisions.
