by Shabeeb Hassan

Q: Hi Sir / Madam,

I am working in a stores division of the one of the corporate firm. We are handling the purchase / procurement for the whole divisions under the corporation and we stores some items and others we delivered to the division's location.

From the stored items we used some items for our own usage means - for the employee of the purchase / procurement division.

How can we pass the entry for the above transaction?

Pls reply at the earliest.

Thanking you
