How to: Revalue Inventory

If you want to appreciate or depreciate an item or a specific item ledger entry, you must use the revaluation journal.

To revalue inventory

  1. Choose the Search for Page or Report icon, enter Revaluation Journal, and then choose the related link.
  2. Choose the Calculate Inventory Value action.
  3. In the Calculate Inventory Value window, fill in the fields as necessary. Choose a field to read a short description of the field or link to more information.
  4. Choose the OK button.
  5. On each line in the Revaluation Journal window, in the Unit Cost (Revalued) field, enter the new unit cost. Alternatively, enter the new total amount in the Inventory Value (Revalued) field.

    The relevant fields are automatically updated. Note that the Amount field shows the actual change in inventory value for the selected item ledger entry. It calculates the difference between the Inventory Value (Calculated) field and the Inventory Value (Revalued) field.

  6. When you have completed all lines in the revaluation journal, choose the Post action.

New value entries are now created to reflect the revaluations that you have posted. You can see the new values on the respective item cards.
