Re: using inventory goods during production

Hi Gerald,

thanks, that sounds easy.

But, how will the cost of the fertiliser appear in the 'costs of goods
sold' of the specific department which consumed the fertiliser?
Thinking of it, the follwoing solution pops up in my mind: 
Maybe through a simultaneous cash transfer?

'fertiliser stock' dept:
cash debited by X
inventory credited by X

'couliflower on area 1' dept:
cash credited by X
costs of goods sold debited by X

both cashes are the same company cash, only appearing under different
departments. So the company cash position won't change a bit, the
inventory is credited and the costs of goods sold are debited.

Does this sound correct?
