Transaction Costs records are automatically created by the Costing Background Process and then listed for the product in this tab.
As soon as a product transaction gets its cost calculated a new record is created in this tab.
Same way as soon as a product transaction gets its cost adjusted a new record is created in this tab referring to a "Cost Adjustment Line".
Some relevant fields to note are:
- Cost Date: that is the date when the cost has been calculated (i.e. accounting date of a goods receipt)
- Cost: that is the total cost calculated by the costing background process
- Currency: that is the currency used to calculate the cost.
Currency cost is legal entity currency, therefore product transaction having a different currency (price list in USD currency for instance) gets its cost calculated in the legacy currency (i.e. EUR)
- Cost Adjustment Line: if a calculated cost comes from a cost adjustment, this field populates the cost adjustment line that causes that cost.
At the end, the total cost of a product transaction is the sum of all the cost listed in this tab, original and adjusted ones which could be part of the unit cost or not (i.e landed costs).
- Unit Cost: this field details whether the calculated cost is part of the unit cost of the product or not.
- Accounting Date:that is the accounting date when the cost has been calculated and post to the ledger (i.e. accounting date of a goods receipt post to the ledger)
