Learn how to adjust item costs automatically and manually

The cost of an item that you purchase and later sell may change during its lifetime, for example because a freight cost is added to its purchase cost after you have sold the item. Cost adjustment is especially relevant in situations where you sell goods before you invoice the purchase of those goods. To always know the correct inventory value, item costs must therefore regularly be adjusted.

You can adjust item costs in two ways. You can have the system do it automatically by adjusting any cost changes every time that inventory transactions occur. Or you can do this manually by running the 'Adjust Cost Item Entries' batch job for one or more items when you know that their costs have changed.
