Miscellaneous Item Codes
The purpose of this enhancement is to enable the setup of default values for use in miscellaneous line items. This will enable more consistent descriptions, tracking of use and most importantly control of the GL accounts effected on miscellaneous line items.
A new system settings menu item has been added to the System Settings -> Miscellaneous menu called “Miscellaneous Item Codes”.
In the Miscellaneous Item Codes form, the user can add/delete miscellaneous items and set Description, Price and Cost, Primary and Cost GL Accounts. The Cost GL Account is only used on Sale type codes. Also, there is a “Purchase Type” checkbox that allows the user to indicate if the code will be used in Sale or Purchase type documents.
In System Settings> Accounting> Miscellaneous Settings, a new setting has been added called “Default Misc. Item Cost Offset GL Account”. This GL account is used to offset any entries made the the Cost GL Account from the Miscellaneous Item Code.
All applications which had the functionality to add Miscellaneous Line Items have now been updated to display a new “Select Miscellaneous Item” form. Based on the document being used only the appropriate Sale or Purchase type codes will be available for selection.
This new Miscellaneous Item Code functionality is now available in:
- Parts Sales Invoices
- Service Orders
- Unit Sales Deals (Proposed Options tab)
- Part POs
- Vendor Invoices
- Adjustment Invoices
appropriate permission, will also be able to create new codes on the fly.
Also, access to the GL account on invoice line items has been removed unless the user has the “Override GL Account” permission setting enabled. Going forward all line item entries are fully controlled by system settings and transaction types.
Access the Miscellaneous Item Codes file in System Settings and define all the items you would typically use on a miscellaneous line items.
