How do I enter an inventory assembly, so the part come out of inventory?

I am trying to sell individual parts as a kit. What do I need to do to take the individual part and make it part of a kit?

Hello Vicki!

Thanks for posting on our Community Forum.

On the home page, under inventory activities is a build assembly command, you use that and build the qty of the assembly item want, that removes the items in the assembly BOM from inventory and stocks the assembly. Then you sell the assembly item.

An assembly is usually used for a unique item you make from other items

A group item is usually used for a kit. a group item is a nickname for items that are sold together, you can set the group item to show or not show in print what items are in the kit. They always show on screen so use print preview to see how it looks to the customer.

You can use either the assembly or the group item, but the preference is for a group item to be kit. It allows you more flexibility in that you can add and delete items in the kit on screen as you sell, you can not do that with an assembly items easily.

You can also contact the QuickBooks Support Number to help you resolve this.

Hope this helps.
