Costing Method 365 – make uncomplicated changes to the costing method

The Costing Method 365 app is a tool that complements the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central package. It is a special solution that allows you to retrospectively change the costing method. This is also possible during operation and without any loss of data.

Fast amendment without data loss

Once set up, the costing method information, as well as the item tracking code and base unit code, is saved in the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central application. When you post item movements, the system always uses this item information as a basis. Different costing methods that access the same basic data can generate widely differing costs and inventory values.

The Costing Method 365 app allows you to modify the item information that is actually saved. Correct historical cost information in the item entries and other transaction data remain untouched when making this change, meaning you don't have to set anything up again and restore it.

Fast assistance with user errors

If the valuation basis (LIFO, FIFO, average, ...) is incorrectly assigned during setup, cost and inventory values may not be calculated as you desire. The Costing Method 365 application allows you to remedy this and change the method for the future from the effective date.

Legal reasons can also crop up.

Should changes occur in the company, it may also be necessary to adjust the costing method. This is the case, for example, if you are aiming to conform with International Accounting Standards (IAS): For example, you exclude LIFO costing method. You can easily change the method with the app.

You change your procurement – or find a practical approach

If you have previously manufactured an item yourself in the company and want to purchase it in future, you may want to adjust the costing method accordingly. The same applies if the number ranges of items with serial or batch numbers are to be converted. You may also simply find that you want to work with different base units and convert the conversions differently when purchasing and selling.
