Stock Transfer

Accounts Plus and Accounts Professional only

If you have a bill of materials on your product record, you can use this option to transfer the components into the main product record. This increases the quantity in stock on the main product record and decreases the quantity in stock on the components.

When you use Stock Transfers, Sage 50 Accounts automatically calculates the cost price of each product assembly by adding together the cost price for each of the components.

For more information about how to set up and use bill of materials, please refer to Ask Sage article 18555
