Using stock items for internal use


I purchased a number of stock items.
Normally these stock items are to be sold and the flow here is very much clear (delivery note to customer).
The item gets booked under a direct expense account and done.

Now what flow do I have to follow in ERPNext when I want to use it for internal use?
It has to be booked on an indirect expense account and stock must be updated (as with a delivery note). Only I’m not a customer.

How do I do this?

We just use a direct stock entry.

So we have a different naming series set up

Not sure how it would work with accounting as we do not use that feature

Thanks for the reply Ron.

Anyone else who could help me with this one?

I can’t imagine no one ever uses an item from his stock for internal use…

I would like to know this one too
Let’s say I’m selling fuel.
how can I record, our internal usage of fuel

Hi santhida,

Make a Stock Entry Purpose: Material Issue and issue out the Item and the Quantities. Use the appropriate Expense/Difference account and the cost of the issue will be charged to that account.

Hope this helps.
