Ability to add costs to items during transfers

We hold stock in locations internationally and bring items into stock at each location using the landed cost for that location (e.g. including freight, insurance).


When we move stock between locations the movement incurs new costs (including import duties when the transfer is between locations in different countries, freight, additional insurance).


It would be very useful to be able to add landed costs to items being transferred between our locations on Dear in the same way that your most recent landed cost feature does (link the transfer to a purchase order that contains the related costs).

Fully support this feature which we would find saves alot of existing spreadsheet work in our business

Here is a short screen-capture video of how this could be added to the existing Dear functionality:

This has been implemented.  See Stock Transfers topic in DEAR Support, step 12 in the write-up.  I have pasted the current instructions below (as of this writing on 14-Nov-2018).



12. Manual Journals tab will appear after stock transfer is completed. You can use journals to allocate transfer-related costs to transferred stock (similar to Manual Journals in the Purchasing Module). There is no authorization required for these, as soon as an entered manual journal is saved, a transaction is generated and cost will be updated. Additionally users can select the way costs are distributed: 
·        By Stock Transferred Cost (in cases where products transferred have no cost then the product average cost will be used for cost distribution)
·        By Quantity of Transferred Products
·        By Weight of Transferred Products - In cases where products have different weight unit of measure, weight will be converted to unified unit of measure for proper distribution. If there is a product with NIL weight then this product won’t get any cost allocated to it.
·        By Volume of Transferred Products - In cases where products have different dimensions unit of measure such as length, width and height will be converted to a unified unit of measure for proper distribution. If a product has no length, width or height indicated, this product won’t get any cost allocated to it.

P.S. Thank Philip for originally adding this feature request!!
