The following table identifies the accounting entries posted in the Shireburn Financial Manager from transaction in the Shireburn Management Inventory System.

The link from the inventory to the accounting system is available from the stock group or where applicable from the location code. Further details will be available before implementation of both systems.

While the system will post sales invoices and purchase invoices individually, the entries for cost of sales, adjustments, and WIP values the system will group together by the stock group (or location) on a daily basis.
