Inventory Adjustment voucher is an instrument that allows us to make adjustment in inventory to match the differences observed between recorded and actual inventory items in certain time duration for a particular item. In some instances, we see difference in the actual and recorded inventory due to various reasons which may be wastage, Breakage, Shrinkage, write-offs and for internal/personal use.
