How do I associate a stock account to an item while creating a bill?

If you create a bill for an item without inventory tracking, you cannot associate a stock account. Instead, you can choose a different account type or enable inventory tracking for that item.

To enable inventory tracking for a particular item, you will have to enable it in Settings first. Here’s how:

  • Go to Setting > Preferences > Items.
  • Check the Enable Inventory Tracking option and select the Inventory Start Date from when you want to track your inventory.
Enable Inventory tracking
  • Click Save.

Once you’ve enabled inventory tracking, you can enable it for a particular item. To do this:

  • Go to Items from the left sidebar.
  • Select the item for which you want to track inventory.
  • Check the Track Inventory for this item option.
  • Choose the stock account from the Inventory Account dropdown.
  • Enter the other necessary details and click Save.
