If you need to set stock levels when you start tracking your inventory, you can import your opening balances. Stock levels will increase and decrease as you buy and sell these items, or if you adjust an item’s balance. Splendid Accounts calculates the value of the items you have on hand and includes this on the balance sheet report. As you trade items, the inventory balance updates. When a sale happens, the value is recorded as the cost of goods sold.
