It is important to remark that a costing rule can be validated if a "Currency" is configured for the legal entity in the organization window, therefore costs are calculated in that given currency.

A valid costing rule once created and validated for a legal entity organization will automatically be assigned to the products of that organization, therefore it can be reviewed in the Costing Rule tab of "Product" window.

Costing rules allow to define whether backdated transactions booked for products on a later date need to be adjusted therefore corresponding "backdated transaction" cost adjustments are also created and booked to get the correct cost of those products.

Notice that "Costing Rules" is a feature implemented by the new Costing Engine, therefore a costing rule can be created and validated within an Openbravo instance managing costs only if it has been migrated to the new "Costing Engine".

Openbravo recommends to migrate instances using the "legacy" costing engine to the new costing engine.
Please review the Costing Migration Process article.
