Cost price for free items brought into the system

Hi Guys,

Is it possible to create a transfer order with no Cost price at all. Since in one particular scenario, let say we got an Item A as free to the company, so i raise a purchase order zero cost price for Site 1, till here its OK, now you transfer Item A from site 1 to site 2. But AX will post the Base cost price of Item A on this particular transfer transaction(In inventTrans “CostAmount”). But in real time you should expect the cost amount should be zero. Since we got the item A as free.

How to work on this scenario…?

Thanks & Regards.


Yes if the cost of your item is zero and it aligns with your costing method and dimension group inventory controls it will be zero after the inventory close is run.
