Adjust Cost — What it is and why you need it

  • Why do I see “Original Cost” and “Adjusted Cost” on the Sales Invoice Statistics page? What is the difference between the two?
  • I received a message when doing [X] that said that my costs needed to be adjusted. What does that mean?
  • When I run this sales report, the cost amounts and margins don’t look accurate and/or don’t tie-out to my “Cost of Goods Sold” section.
  • How does NAV apply costs to my sales when I ship Items to my customers?

What is “Adjust Cost — Item Entries”?

Is this something I need to run manually? And if so, how often?

  • Never: Costs are never adjusted automatically when Item entries are posted. A user must manually run this function, or the function must be set up to run automatically on the NAV Job Queue on a pre-defined frequency (nightly).
  • Day/Week/Month/Quarter/Year: Costs are adjusted if posting occurs within one Day/Week/Month/Quarter/Year from the work date when an Item entry is posted.
  • Always: Costs are always adjusted when posting, irrespective of the posting date. This will impact the processing time of each transaction “post”, but depending on the size of the NAV database and other infrastructure considerations, this additional time may be imperceptible to the user.

Aren’t my costs always up to date? What is an example where Adjust Cost is needed?

  1. On January 1, we receive and invoice 100 EA of Item №75000 at $20.00, resulting the Item Ledger Entry below. The “Unit Cost” on the Item Card is not adjusted and remains at $20.00.
