Re: how to correct stock quantity on hand

Thank you for the prompt advice. Noted can use "adjust qty /value on hand" to correct stock qty.

Won't the difference in stock qty value be  reflected as an expense off the P & L  if we adjust the stock on hand this way? As there is no actual physical loss of stock but  incorrect qty input in invoice, please help to advise if there are other options to correct the stock qty on hand without treating it as a loss ?
