Deleting inventory items

Fincon Accounting allows you to delete an inventory item when there is no reference of it on the system in the current financial year, in other words, the item is not present on any transactions within the current financial year.

"Current Financial Year" in this context means period 1 to 24 in the "Current" year.

You are also allowed to delete the item if there is no stock of it on the system.

So if there is a reference of it on the system or you still have stock of the item, you will not be able to delete it.
