Transfer Analysis

When using different stock journals for each transaction, Transfer Analysis gives the movement details for each type of stock journal.

This report displays information about the items which are transacted in the stock journal voucher. Generally, in stock journal voucher, movement of goods, manufacture of goods or inter-godown transfer is recorded.

This is a very useful costing and waste analysis tool. In non-manufacturing set ups, which have multiple godowns, this report is a quick check to verify that all transfer entries have been entered correctly.
