There are two types of cost adjustments transactions:
- "source", for instance a vendor receipt (V+) whose purchase price has changed
- "not source", for instance a customer shipment (C-) whose cost needs to be adjusted because of vendor receipt cost being adjusted.
Some relevant files to note are:
- Inventory Transaction: Transactions available are:
- Vendor receipt (V+)
- Customer shipment (C-)
- Inventor in (I+)
- Inventory out (I-)
- Movement from (M-)
- Movement to (M+)
- Production (P+)

- Internal consumption (D-)
- Internal consumption (D+)
- Adjustment Amount: that is the cost adjustment amount.
An adjustment amount can also be reviewed in the Product window, "Transaction" tab, "Transaction Cost" tab always related to a "Cost Adjustment Line".
- Is source: options available are "Yes" or "No" as a product transaction can be the source of an adjustment or not.
- Parent Cost Adjustment Line: In the case of a cost adjustment that is not the source, this field shows the source cost adjustment line.
- Needs Posting: options available are "Yes" or "No". Most cost adjustments needs to be posted to the ledger as they mean an increase/decrease of product asset value, however there are other whose cost adjustment is 0,00 that does not need any posting.
- Unit Cost:options available are "Yes" or "No".
- There are cost adjustments such a price difference correction which impact product unit cost
- There are cost adjustment such as landed cost which does not impact product unit cost.
It is important to remark that each Product Transaction has below listed cost:
- "Trx Original Cost", that is the original cost of the product transaction
- "Total Cost", that is the sum of the original cost and all adjustment costs
- "Unit Cost", that is the sum of the original cost and all adjustment of the unit cost, that is the cost which does not include landed cost.
- Is Backdated Trx: a cost adjustment can be marked as backdated transaction if applicable.
For instance a backdated transaction cost adjustment can have two lines, one that is the backdated transaction as source and another one that is not the source neither a backdated transaction.
- Is Negative Stock Correction: a cost adjustment can be marked as negative stock correction if applicable.
For instance a backdated transaction cost adjustment can have two lines, one that is the backdated transaction as source and another one that is not the source but a negative stock correction.
