By default, Point of Sale creates an account in QuickBooks named POS Inventory Adjustments and may send transactions to this account when:

  • An inventory item with a quantity and cost associated with it is manually created.
  • An inventory item which has a quantity and cost associated with it is deleted.
  • A cost adjustment memo is created.
  • An item’s quantity has been changed in the Edit Item screen, or a quantity adjustment memo has been created manually.
  • A cost or quantity adjustment memo is reversed.
  • Changes to the physical inventory are made through the Point of Sale Physical Inventory process.
