I have an account that has 2 physical plants. They transfer some component items from one to another. The issue is they would like to apply a different cost to the component at the receiving facility to include the freight cost.
We are discussing setting up 2 Sites (EPDM).
The question is we transfer the inventory from one to another, we do not sell it. example: if the cost is 1.00 at the production location, Plant A and 1.25 at the receiving location, Plant B. (Std Cost).
When we transfer the component we can credit Plant A's inventory for 1.00 and debit intransit for 1.00. (IW). What do we do when we receive at plant B? The inventory will be received at 1.25 (RW).
We could debit the Inv account - plant B, and credit another intransit - in for the 1.25. But how do we clear the delta at the end of the month between the two intransit accounts? (.25)
I think we would need to clear these two accounts with a journal entry and the delta hit an Inventory adjustment account. (add up IWs against RWs).
