We suggest that you enter the stock valuation every month using Tools > Journals (although you may want to confirm this with your accountant/bookkeeper).


For example, say in August stock was worth £2,000; but was £5,000 at the end of September


Dr Inventory £2,000

Cr Cost of Sales £2,000


We suggest you date this on the 31st August.


On the 30th September create a journal to reverse out the August inventory balance:


Cr Inventory £2,000

Dr Cost of Sales £2,000


Finally, journal the September valuate:


Dr Inventory £5,000

Cr Cost of Sales £5,000


Both the latter would be dated 30th September.
