TASBooks - Stock adjustments

To help you increase or decrease the goods you hold in stock, you use the Stock Adjustments window. It's generally used to write-off damaged stock, or to adjust quantities after a stock take. You can also use the Stock Adjustment window to enter opening balances.

When you produce a credit note, this can put goods back into stock. This also applies to assembly-type products. However, in many cases you may not want to put all or some of the goods back into stock.

Note: This option is only available if your TASBooks licence includes the Stock Control module.
