  • The bottom section provides additional detail with the original budget, year-to-date actual expenditures, encumbrances (legal contracts in process), and year-to- date percentage of cost to budget by expenditure category.

Profit and Loss Reports

Profit and Loss Report - January 2015

Profit and Loss Reports are produced for each proprietary fund.  These are funds that function as individual internal city business where services are provided and the user fees are collected for the services.  These are Enterprise and Internal Service Funds.

Each report provides the annual budget, year-to-date actual expenditures, variance and percentage of budget spent year-to-date.  The variance is the difference between total budget and actual expenditures. The report is broken down to identify Revenue and Expenditures by category with a calculation of net income or loss for the period.

Employee salaries include a variety of different categories, which are explained below.

Fringe Benefits are defined as costs paid by the city for employees related to retirement, group insurance, allowances, paid time off, etc. Included in paid time off benefits are items such as vacation, sick time, holiday and any other time the employee is compensated but not working. 

Instead of charging each benefit separately to departments by employee, the city accumulates these costs into a pool. The costs from this pool are distributed back to departments based on the Labor Burden Fringe Benefit Rate shown in the table above.

The Labor Burden Fringe Benefit Rate is calculated based on the estimated time worked for the fiscal year divided by the total estimated costs of the Fringe Benefit pool. The rate is periodically reviewed and updated to ensure that the rate being charged is sufficient to cover the Fringe Benefits. The city has four such rates depending on the retirement requirement and employee group (e.g., elected, appointive, classified, fire or hourly). 

The 100% Salary Fringe Benefit Rate is calculated based on total salary of an employee divided by the total estimated costs of the Fringe Benefit pool excluding time not worked.

It is important to note that each employee’s actual usage of paid time off, group insurance choice and other contractual benefits, can vary widely from employee to employee.  The use of the Fringe Benefit rate allows for a standard method to allocate costs over all departments.
