    Stock General Ledger Sets

    by J. » Thu Jan 15, 2015 4:48 pm

    I am under the assumption that if we use GL sets – we can redirect the transaction to different general ledger accounts.

    So for example as a default all stock purchases goes to Inventory - Finished Goods account in the GL.

    However I can set up a GL Set for Gunpowder which will post any receipt of gunpowder to Inventory - Dangerous Goods instead of Inventory - Finished Goods account in the GL.

    This is what I am trying to achieve but instead of posting to Inventory - Dangerous Goods the entry is going to the default Inventory - Finished Goods account

    Not necessarily, depending on how chart of accounts is set-up, stock purchases might debit your purchases account, not your inventory - finished goods account. If that's what's happening in your case, changing the GL set redirection for inventory will gave no effect on day to day transactions.

    There is a general ledger sets topic in the general ledger help file that goes through all the different types of automatic postings the system generates, so you can use this information as a guide.

    Assuming your system is set-up to debit purchases and not stock on hand, what you actually need to do is set-up multiple purchases accounts. Then changing the purchases account on the applicable sets. If your chart uses opening/closing stock method, you would then need to set-up multiple opening/closing stock accounts as well.
