FIFO Cost Lot Tracking 

In the First In First Out (FIFO) concept, the stock that comes in first to the organization through any means like the opening stock, and other sales and purchase transactions gets sold out in the same order. In simple words, the stock which comes in first, goes out first.

Let’s understand this better with the help of a scenario. John has an opening stock of 100 laptops, which he enters in Zoho Books. He purchases another 50 of them from Bailey, and records a bill for it. Now, John decides to sell 2 laptops to his customer.

In this case, John will have two lots of laptops – the opening stock (100 laptops) and the stock from the bill (50 laptops). When he sells the laptops, the stock gets deducted from the opening stock first since this is his first lot . After the opening stock of 100 laptops get sold out, the stock gets deducted from the next transaction recorded in Zoho Books (in this case, the bill from Bailey).

Note:
It doesn’t matter from where John manually selects the two laptops, i.e., the opening stock or the stock received from Bailey. It will always be deducted from the first lot (in this case, the opening balance).
