How We Do Inventory Transfer for Multiple Locations in QuickBooks Online Plus

QuickBooks Online Plus is a cloud version of QuickBooks that enables you to manage your business at any time and from any location.

Inventory Transfer – The missing feature of Online Plus:

While you can record sales – monitor expenses and check your financials on a real-time from any internet enabled device including your mobile devices – with other versions of QuickBooks, Inventory transfer between locations is a task you can only perform if you subscribe to the platinum version of QuickBooks Enterprise. This means that, if you own multiple stores and you are using other versions of QuickBooks like Pro, Premier or you are currently subscribed to QuickBooks Online Plus, you cannot record inventories transfers from between/among different locations.

But what if we show you an alternative way to achieve this inventory transfer? It is suitable for multiple locations, your financials will not be doctored and your inventory report will be intact.

But what if we show you an alternative way to achieve this inventory transfer process for multiple locations without getting your financials doctored and still have your inventory report intact?

We have implemented this process for a lot of inventory-based organisations that:

  • are subscribed to QuickBooks Online Plus version.
  • own multiple stores, want to view inventory report, and record sales of each of the locations
  • transfer products at cost to various locations.

The process of inventory transfer in QuickBooks Online Plus can also work for the desktop version, but it makes more sense if the data is saved on a cloud. Hence, users can also apply the guide shared on QuickBooks Pro Plus and Premier Plus subscriptions.

While the class feature will help you monitor each of the warehouse or store transactions, the overall endpoint of this transfer process is that:

  • The inventory balance (quantity and value) at the receiving location will increase by the equivalent of the quantity sent at cost price.
  • The inventory balance (quantity and value) at the sending store will reduce by the equivalent of what was sent.
  • No other report is affected; your profit or loss, statement of financial position, cash flow, etc remain intact.
  • Users at different locations can sell from respective stores and generate a store-specific sales report.
