There are a couple of ways to correctly account for damaged, expired, stolen or otherwise "lost" inventory. 

Option 1 - The Discount

To track loss accurately, we recommend running the products through the point of sale as a "sale" with a 100% discount. 

This way, the losses are tracked in your discount report and the inventory is accurately decremented. 

________________

Option 2 - The Manual Adjustment

You also have the option to simply edit the quantities (via Actions -> Edit on the inventory page) and add a note explaining the loss. This method will help you track losses using the Inventory Change Report (just check the "Removed" column).

It's up to you!
