at the time of GR system debits the stock account (BSX)

AND make a offsetting entry at the GR/ir clearing account

my query is why the sytem debits the STOCK ACCOUNT rather it should credit the stock account because we have procured the material and our stock and value of stock increases

    Hi

    How do you say the stock has to be credited?

    When the stock comes into the company it is an asset and it will result in the increase of asset so it has to be debited.

    If it gets credited it will result in decrease of stock or it will be a liability.

    I hope you remember the 3 golden rules of accounting....

    1) Debit what comes in and

    Credit what goes out.

    2) Debit all expenses and losses and

    Credit all incomes and Gains

    3) Debit the receiver and

    Credit the giver.

    The accounting entries gets passed into the books of accounts only based on these rules.

    Hope it helps

    Good Luck

    Hari

    hi,

    the process is like this

    PO - there is no financial entry

    GRIR - Stock Dr

    GR/IR Cr

    MIGO - GR/IR Dr

    Vendor Cr

    Consumption posting - Consumption Dr

    Stock Cr

    So GR/Ir is the offsetting entry. Once you procured the material that will come under stock (i.e asset to the company) and then whenever you are utilising the materials(i.e consumption) then only it will happen the expenses. Because you will not utilise the entire quantity for production. So some stocks will be lying in stores.

    Actual utilisation is the expenses, otherwise it is asset to the company.

    govind.
