Complete a Value Adjustment


Value adjustments refer to modifications made to the value of your inventory, which can either be increases or decreases. These adjustments allow for the appropriate upward or downward correction of the inventory's worth as necessary.

Begin a Value Adjustment 

On the Order Time main page, click on Warehouse and select Create New Value Adjustment.

The Adjustment screen will generate the next available adjustment number. On this screen, you will choose the Date, Location, Account to be posted, Class. You will be able to type additional information under the Memo section.  

  • The date will be very important. Whatever adjustments are completed for the chosen date, it will be marked in your books as of that date.  Your Value will reflect the changes completed for the date posted for your adjustment. 
  • Select the Account type you will be making the adjustment to. This selection will depend on the type of value adjustment.
    • If you are opening a transaction pick an Equity Account.
    • If you are doing write offs, select a Cost of Goods or an Expense Account. (i.e. Spoilage). 
  • Select a Class if needed.

Basically what you do is enter the item that you want to adjust, then enter the value to be adjusted.

  • In my image below I have a starting value (Old Value) of $24 and I adjusted it (Amount) to add $1000 and the New Value of the item is $1024.
  • If you need to decrease the value then you would enter a negative amount.
  • Once you are done change the status on the adjustment to Closed.
