Hello,

My company have to transfer 10 items from inventory to be cleaned to a subcontractor. How can I post it? I was told that I cannot adjust the 10 items by using the account "Product cost" because I am not returning the items, I am only moving the items and by using the account "product cost" this will affect my income statement. I was told that I should create an account such as " Pending Inventory" or "Transfer Inventory" (Expense account) and use this one only to keep the 10 items not available. Then create a document to shipped out the 10 items. When I receive back the 10 items, I must add them to the inventory by using the same account. Is it correct what I was told? If it is so, what would it be the name of the account to put 10 items not available temporarily and what will it be the name of the document to keep tracking these items moved to the subcontractor?
Thank you for your help

Create a new inventory acct called "Offsite Inventory". Move the 10 items to that account. When they return, move them back to Inventory.
