More clarification on this - you can find this on metalink -
The five Valuation accounts and the default Expense account are
defined at the organization level. The valuation accounts apply to
each subinventory and intransit within the organization. They
cannot be changed at the subinventory level under layer costing.
The expense account defaults to each subinventory within the
organization and can be overridden.
You can choose a different valuation account for each cost element, or use the same account for several or all elements.
How you set up your accounts determines the level of elemental
detail in the General Ledger and on Inventory valuation reports.
The system maintains the average unit cost at the organization level; it
does not use any subinventory valuation accounts. If you had separate
valuation accounts by subinventory, total inventories would balance,
but account balances by subinventory would not match the inventory
