Before you enter the receipt and expense invoices into the database, you need to reflect in the accounting the balances in the warehouse at the beginning of its maintenance. Stock balances must be entered on the date before the beginning of the period. It is most convenient for accountants to keep records of goods in the program "1C: Trade + Warehouse", the configuration of which allows filling in the table "Inventory of goods and materials" using the report "Remains of goods and materials".
Start setting up the "Remains of goods and materials" report and call the processing of the tabular section "Inventory of goods and materials" from the dialog. This can be done in any of two ways: using the "Inventory" button or the "Fill" button in the "Inventory of goods and materials" document by selecting the "Fill from report" tab in the menu. After that, you need to fill in the table from the inventory document, which contains the report "Inventory balances" for the group of goods you need.
Select the warehouse where the inventory is being carried out and specify a specific group of goods for which the balance is checked. Keep in mind that you can select products based on their properties. In addition, it is possible to create an arbitrary list of products using a multiple filter.
Set in the filter “Balances” the option “All non-zero” in the flag “Including reserve”. This is done so that the inventory takes into account the real balances, and not the reserved goods. Use a convenient switch in the "Prices" tab - "Average cost without VAT". This will make it easier for you to complete your task. However, if the inventory is carried out in a retail warehouse, the position should be set to "Selling price (retail only)", because the inventory in such a warehouse is carried out at the same retail prices at which the goods in the retail warehouse are counted.
Click the "Inventory" button when you finish installing all the necessary settings. In automatic mode, the required document "Inventory of goods and materials" will be generated. If you have selected a wholesale warehouse, the type "Inventory (by warehouse)" will be set for the generated document. If you specified a retail warehouse, then the type will be indicated "Inventory (retail)". The table in the document will contain the balances of goods in accordance with the settings that you set in the report “Inventory balances”.
Enter in the "Inventory" all the actual data on the goods in the warehouse. Next, fill out the documents "Write-off of goods and materials" or "Posting of goods and materials", depending on whether you need to reflect the shortage or enter a surplus of goods.
