How to Automatically Update the Unit Cost in Goods Received Notes


There are instances where the unit cost in Goods Received Notes is blank or incorrect because the user(s) recording received goods is restricted from viewing/editing the unit cost. The other user recording Purchase Invoices who is allowed to view/edit the unit cost shall correct the unit cost upon transfer and the system can automatically update the unit cost in the Goods Received Notes.



1. Navigate to Maintenance > System Options > Purchases Tab.

2. Tick ‘Automatically Update Unit Cost in Goods Received Note’ and Save.


1. In the sample Goods Received Note (GRN2209/001) below, the unit cost is blank.

In Stock Inquiry, there’s also no Cost Price for the GRN2209/001.

2. Transfer the GRN2209/001 to Purchase Invoice, enter the unit cost/price, and save.

3. Open the GRN2209/001 or perform Stock Inquiry again, the unit cost/price is updated automatically.
