We have set up the following example to illustrate:

We created and posted a purchase order with the cost of $3.00. This resulted in a Purchase Price Variance of $1.00:

We then created and posted a Purchase Credit Memo, which created the following General Ledger entries:

You can see that the Purchase Price Variance has not been reversed and that it has left the Purchases Account and Direct Cost Applied Accounts with a different balance.

For more information on this setup, please see our previous Blog on Exact Cost Reversing.

We again created a posted a Purchase Order to get the same Purchase Price Variance of $1.00.

To reverse the Purchase Price Variance in a Purchase Credit Memo, you must select the ‘Applies to Item Ledger Entry’ that created the original Purchase Price Variance.
