HQ SO Question about costs for transfers

I have a location in Country A using store ops and am opening another location in Country B. I will be getting HQ soon and store ops for Country B.
All items will be received in Country A, so there will be a cost associated with the item.
However, when I transfer goods to Country B to put into thier stock, I will need to change the cost to account for duty and freight. In other words, the transfer in for Country B will need to have a different cost from the transfer out from Country A.
Does HQ and/or SO have the capability to do this?

Good morning Jason, Thank you for posting your HQ question. There is not a way to have this done within the inventory transfer since it will use the cost from the store the item is being sent from; but you can use Worksheet 302 to send prices changes to the store. You can even use the Formula button within this worksheet if you can simply add a value to the current cost; and then apply that formula to all rows. Please let me know if this answers your question.

Todd- Thanks for the response. I don't have HQ now (only on SO store) so I can't check this, but it seems like it should work. When I do an inventory transfer in in SO now, there is a cost field. Let's assume I create a transfer out at Location A. I assume HQ will create the corresponding transfer in for Location B. Before I receive the inventory at Location B, why can't I just manually change the costs on the transfer order. When I commit to the database, it will update my item costs. Are you saying that the item costs would be updated at Location A as a result? I thought the HQ/SO setup allowed different costs at different locations...

Unfortunately, you can't use the formula button to adjust the amounts currently in the field - just the values held within the Item table. I really with they would add the functionality to be able to perform a funcion on the value currently in the cost field of the PO or transfer form.

Good morning Jason, Thank you for the follow up. You are correct that if you create a transfer at the store than you are able to change the cost; however if you create the transfer at HQ then the there is not a means to change the cost. If you want to adjust the cost on the transfer you should be able to click in the Cost field and then click Formula; and if you need to adjust the current costs at the store than you should be able to go to Wizards | Inventory Wizard | Task 130 change item costs. Please let me know if this answers your questions; and you may want to contact your partner to obtain a demo of HQ so that you can test prior to purchasing.

In most cases HQ will not work accross multiple countries [taxes, currencies, etc...]. If you want to discuss your needs contact me.

RMS HQ/SO should work in my situation because there are no currency or tax issues. All inventory is costed in the same currency. I just have different warehouses in different countries with different costs. When I transfer from warehouse to warehouse, I need to update the cost basis for each item.
I really just need the simple question answered about how the transfer function works within the framework of HQ/SO.
