I would like to have some help in understanding how Good Receipts can affect the Cost of Goods Sold.
The example is: I have a Purchase Invoice from a supplier who has shipped their items to me. Let’s say 10 glasses. When the glasses arrive I see that 2 are broken or missing. The supplier might send me a Credit Note but in any case that doesn’t happen I have to pay for 10 pieces but receive in my stock only 8 pieces. This means that my cost per piece for this shipment goes up.
If I have a Purchase Invoice in Manager for 10 and then copy that to a Goods Receipt with only 8, will Manager automatically recalculate the cost of those 8 pieces? Or do I need to receive the 10 piece and add an Item write-off for the 2 broken glasses?
There is also a more complicated example. The items might attract duties. Therefore when they arrive customs might or might not see the damaged pieces. In the unfortunate case they don’t see it, we pay duties on the broken pieces, hence we have a Purchase Invoice for 10, a Good Receipt for 10 and a Write-Off for 2. But if we see the broken items and we do not pay duties on them, we are in a situation like the previous one, though a Write-off here would reduce the stock value for 2/10 of the Purchase invoice and 2/8 of the total taxws paid. Correct? Is there a way to have the Write-off only to account for the 2/10 of the Purchase Invoice?
