# KBA-01568: Allocation Example

## Question:

How would I set up the following allocations?

• A Labor Burden/Overhead allocation of 142% to Labor
• An additional 6% allocation for Cost of Money
• An allocation for Fees based on a 155% Fee to the State and our internal 15% handling fee

So, for example, if Labor is \$100:

• Labor Burden/Overhead allocation = \$142.00
• Additional 6% for Cost of Money = \$0.60
• Fee Allocation is 15% handling on a 155% State Fees on the Labor Amount = \$38.25

Using the Allocations tool found on the Manage Dashboard:

 Source Account Category Sequence Target Account Category Print As Allocation % Labor 10 Revenue Burden/Overhead 142 Labor 20 Revenue Cost of Money 6 Labor 30 Revenue Fees 38.25**

**The 155% of State Fee * 15% Handling Fee = 38.25% Allocation %

Note:  This example uses only one Sequence–that is, there are no compound calculations such as 6% for Insurance and then another 3% for Bonds but the 3% for Bonds is calculated on the Base Cost + the Insurance.  For this type of compound allocation, Bonds would be in Sequence 100, and if you had another allocation that included all the Allocations from the base calculation + Bonds, you would place that Allocation in Sequence 300.
