Importing Adjustments into QuickBooks Enterprise

Last updated 08/01/2021

How to import Adjustments to QuickBooks Enterprise.


If you are using the Perpetual inventory accounting method, you will import adjustments to increase or decrease your inventory asset/SOH account using journals.

Depending on the stock movements within each adjustment, the net value will either be positive or negative.

Importing a positive adjustment will debit your inventory account and credit your allocated expenses account.

Importing a negative adjustment will credit your inventory account and debit your default expenses account. After this you may choose to direct this from your default expense account to an alternative account that deals specifically with stock loss, theft etc. if you have these set up.

There are two conditions for Adjustments to be imported into QuickBooks Enterprise:

  • The total of the adjustment is not 0, and
  • the "Adjust To Xero" date field has been populated within the adjustment.

Running the QuickBooks Web Connector

Before you can import anything into QuickBooks Enterprise you must first run the QuickBooks Web Connector, if you have not already done so recently.

  1. Make sure you are logged into the correct QuickBooks Enterprise account.
  2. In QuickBooks Web Connector, select Cin7 from the list of connections, then select Update Selected.
  3. In Cin7, from the left navigation, select Accounting, then the QuickBooks Enterprise app.
  4. Select Refresh After Running QB Connector.
