What happends if I sell assemblies that aren't built?

Hi All -

 

A brand new Peachtree/Sage user here.  I just got it installed and had an accountant help me get set up.  One concern I have that I hope someone can answer:

 

We are a small manufacturer/seller of specialty clamping products.  We offer about 50 products which are assemblies of parts.  I have all of the parts set up in Sage inventory.  I have also defined assemblies for each of our products that we offer for sale.  We do not inventory products, only parts.  When a customer purchases one of our products we send them an assembly of parts (mostly unassembled).

 

According to my accountant, I have to "build" assemblies before I can sell them.  I don't want to do that.  So here is my question:  we use a shopping cart called Click Cart Pro.  It will export all of our sales to Peachtree/Sage.  So when I import our sales data will Peachtree/Sage accept the sales and indicate negative quantities for assemblies I have not built?  Or will it not accept the sales data?

 

I really did not expect that I would have to "build" assemblies.  Ideally I would just import our sales information and Peachtree/Sage would match the orders to our pre-defined assemblies and adjust our parts inventory accordingly.

 

Any insight/suggestions are appreciated!

  • Was this answered somewhere else?  Have this same issue, but spanning years and the negative quantities are in the thousands.  Would rather Cost of Sales Journal note have to be the account to take the hit all at once.

  • Hi Sean,

    The question from 9 years ago was posed in the context of an eCommerce integration.  I offer an eCommerce integration, CartSpan,  that can build the assembly at the time of import provided you have sufficient 1st level child components available.  

    If you have multi-level BoMs and need a deeper look into current requirements, you might consider another product I author called PracticalMRP.  This tool will drill-down to let you know what quantities of common assemblies you need to build to support end-item BoMs.
