Introduction to Items and Pricing

The Item register contains information about the products and services that you sell. It is accessible from the Sales Support, Stock and Sales Ledger modules.

You can group Items of a similar type together using Item Groups. You can give every Item belonging to the same Group the same default Sales and Cost Accounts, Credit Account and VAT Codes, saving you the work of having to specify these for all Items individually. Defining and assigning Item Groups also makes modification easier: if you need to assign a different Cost Account, for example, you only need make one change (to the Item Group), rather than many (to each of the Items).

If information is specified both for an Item Group and for an Item that belongs to that Group, the information entered for the Item will take precedence.
