Shipping Charge as an Item - non-stock or stock on Item Card?

Because the customer needs to see that there is a shipping charge on the Posted Sales Shipment, we were thinking we would use an Item to issue freight charges (not associate a cost as this is seen in the inventory valuation) as opposed to Item Charges which are currently being used; however, we see conflicting opinions regarding this theoretical Item we want to create - should it be non-stock, or should we keep stock, of this 'Item'? Any other recommendations?

  • Hi,
    Well you run NAV 2016. Then I would suggest that you change the Item Type to Service. That will disable the generation of inventory entries, while still posting values and updating statistics.
    In NAV 2016 the field is hidden in the default item card, but is there on the card in NAV 2017.
