The value of goods costs can be taken from the goods settings or from the last arrival of goods, and you can also calculate the average of the cost of goods in all arrivals. To determine how the prime cost will be considered, go to the Warehouse - Settings section and select the appropriate option from the drop-down list. Click the Save button.
The prime cost value changes automatically when making a new arrival of goods and indicating the price.
