Effect on Cost for a Decrease Adjustment

Posted on by UG Leader


I know that a cost cannot be entered for a decrease adjustment and that the first layer of Inventory Receipts is utilized.

So, for an item whose valuation method is FIFO Perpetual, is there an effect on cost when a decrease adjustment is conducted?

    FIFO Perpetual = actual cost.  The current cost won't change as inventory is not going up.  The standard cost wont change as we are not in a periodic item. The overall value of the inventory will go down since you are removing something from stock.

    Is that what you were asking?
