How to exclude cost of a specific item only one time
We have the business requirement to, in certain cases, not include the "purchase" price of an item on a PO. Here is the business scenario:
Currently the business uses perpetual average cost.
A supplier has given the business a free trial, or a sample of item X that is currently in stock, and that has a cost already associated. A PO is created for this item(for the sample), and the cost is $0. Is there a way to make sure that his purchase price is NOT included when all the costing processes are run?
There are a few other situations that excluding a certain transaction from cost is desired.
