Please note:

  • Transfers can be only be changed or cancelled using Void and Undo after they have been completed if no transfer items have been used in sale/production or other stock movement.

  • Stock cannot be transferred if a Stocktake is being carried out at either the to or from location.

  • Component items must be in the same location to be used together in the Production phase.

 

 

To transfer stock between locations:

  3. Choose a Stock Sent Date for the stock transfer to take effect on the system and a In Transit Account (if required). The In Transit Account will hold stock value while goods are in transit. It can be used for scenarios where the transfer will take some time to reach the destination warehouse e.g. if you Warehouses are far apart from each other. In this case you will also need to complete the Stock Received Date when goods have reached their destination warehouse. Detailed information on transactions generated using In Transit Account can be found here.

  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.
