About the IN Adjustment Entry Form
Use this form to adjust current Inventory levels and/or their values.
Adjustments are generally made to compensate for theft, incorrect postings, or write-offs. Adjustments for discrepancies found during physical counts can also be entered here, though typically they will be entered directly in IN Physical Count Worksheet . This form can also be used to expense materials that are not accounted for in production, transfers, sales, or other posting, directly to a GL account.
You can adjust units only (setting Total Cost to 0.00), total cost only (setting Units to 0.00), or both units and total cost. Changes to Unit Cost only will have no impact. If adjusting both units and total cost, the Unit Cost used to calculate the Total Cost is determined by the Cost Method specified for the location (i.e., if the Cost Method is Avg Unit Cost, the Unit Cost will be the material’s Avg Unit Cost as defined in Location Materials). The Cost Method is defined in IN Company Parameters, but may be overridden by location (IN Locations) or by location/category (IN Location Category Override).
Adjustments made here will update the Average Unit Cost and On Hand amounts appropriately (in IN Location Materials). Average Unit Cost will not be updated for expense entries where the default GL Account has been overwritten unless the GL account is equal to the material’s Inventory Adjustment account (in IN Locations).
