Dynamics GP Inventory Items

Dynamics GP Inventory ItemsDynamics GP allows you to add inventory items to track physical items and non-stock items. Creating an item record for non-stock items is handy because you can:

  • include an extended description
  • add pricing schedules
  • identify specific GL account numbers for transaction processing

If your tracking inventory quantities, you have 5 inventory valuation methods to choose from. You can have different inventory valuation methods in your inventory. It’s not a system-wide setting. These are the methods:

  • Actual Cost – FIFO
  • Actual Cost – LIFO
  • Standard Cost – FIFO

Make sure you mark the items or the Inventory Class to “Maintain History”. Why this is not s default setting, I don’t know:
