Software: MoneyWorks accounting software
Create Journal is a stock related journal in MoneyWorks accounting system, which uses to increase the stock quantity such as manufactured or the existing product. For example, you discovered that Product_123 has ten pieces instead of nine, you may use a Create Journal to increase the stock on hand of Product_123 instead of a full stocktake process. Use a relevant Cost of Sales or Expense account as a contra account if you are using a Create Journal instead of inventory assembly feature to increase the stock on hand of the manufactured product.
Change the contra account to SETUP if you are using the Create Journal instead of a stocktake to record the ‘opening stock’. The SETUP account is an account used in MoneyWorks to store all the opening balances of your file.
