Introduction to the Item Register

The Item register is where you store information about the products and services that you sell.

You can group Items of a similar type together using Item Groups. Every Item belonging to an Item Group can be given the same Sales and Cost Accounts, Stock Account and VAT Codes, saving you the work of having to specify these in each individual Item record. Defining and assigning Item Groups also makes modification easier: if you need to change the Cost Account, for example, you only need make one change (to the Item Group), rather than many (to each of the Items). If necessary you can of course specify an Account or VAT Code in an individual Item record: this will take precedence over the Account or VAT Code specified in the Item Group. Assigning Items to Item Groups can also help with reporting. Many reports in Standard ERP allow you to list Items belonging to a particular Item Group.
