I have a situation like, we have some item which we keep in stock. and for a project we negotiated with supplier and they offered a special price with additional 15% discount in addition to standard 50% ( for stock items )
now the issue is, the item being stock if we use the standard entry in the Sales Quote/ Sales order the project will not be benefited with the special discount what they received. At the same time, i am not very comfortable for creating all new items with a special price only for this project. This way i may have to create new items for every variation of discount for the standard item.
So is there a way i can use the same stock item only in the Sales order/ Sales quote and can avail the benefit to that sale order ( which shows more GP than of standard stock item ) One suggestion came to my mind is passing the extra benefits through accounts entries but i dont think that is the right way of doing. and there must be some better way to handle this situation.
Can any one guide me the best practice for such situation
Which Cost Method do you use?
I think you need custom solution for extra additional (special) discount.
Have you looked at the Sales Prices Setup which you can setup based on the Customer/Price Group....
We are using standard method only.
Using Standard Costs, all purchase transactions are posted with the same unit costs (which you update using the Standard Costs Worksheet).
So, a discounted supplier price is not considered automatically. You would have to update the standard costs manually (which would affect other orders also). Creating an individual item might solve this problem too.
Your initial setup seems not to be optimal.As an alternative, you could consider to change your Costing Method (to FIFO for example). Going this route, you could apply (using the Application Worksheet) the sales transactions to the discounted purchase entry.
But, changing the Costing Method is a complex task.
Hannes is right; but you should investigate more because you're changing your costing model and that is a bussiness decision more than a software problem. The concept of standard cost is when you don't want to be aware of the exact purchasing cost, that is solved by FIFO cost as Hannes said.
Thanks heaps Hannes .. ya i agree changing the costing method is really complex one. So i have to stick with creating a new item
