Currently there is an inconsistency between the Inventory Value Movement report and Inventory Quantity Movement report with regards to displaying the Opening Balances for the same reporting dates.
The Inventory Value Movement report shows an Inventory’s opening balance regardless of there being a movement. An advantage here is that the User can generate an internal report that can be used to validate the Balance Sheet’s inventory valuation.
Whereas the Inventory Quantity Movement report only shows an Inventory’s opening balance if there has been a movement. A disadvantage here is that a User can’t generate an internal report of all inventory quantities that can be used to validate stock taking counts.
