need to move an item from inventory to store use

Hello there, @LCT.


Good to see you here in QuickBooks Community. I'm here to help and guide you on how to move an item from inventory to store use. 


In this case, you'll need to process an inventory adjustment to remove the available quantity of the item. To do this, let me walk you through the steps:

  1. At the top menu bar, click Inventory
  2. Go to Adjust Quantity/Value on Hand
  3. Select the Adjustment Type drop-down arrow and choose Quantity.
  4. Enter the date of the adjustment.
  5. Select the Adjustment Account drop-down arrow and then choose the account where you want to track inventory adjustments. You can use an expense account for losses. 
  6. (Optional) Enter additional details as needed, such as reference number, Customer/Job, or Class.
  7. Under the Item column, add the items.
  8. Enter the quantity adjustment under New Quantity or Qty Difference column. In the Qty Difference column, enter the difference between the quantity currently in QuickBooks and the actual quantity.
  9. Save the adjustment.

For additional reference, you can check this article on how to adjust inventory quantity or value.
