3472509 - Inventory account in inventory transactions is also used as offset account


The result of the Inventory Audit Report (IAR) does not match the balance of the inventory account balances in the General Ledger (G/L).

One of possible reasons can be the usage of an Inventory Account as an offset or contra account, for example, when the same G/L account appears on Debit and Credit side of inventory document's Journal Entry.

This KBA is covered in SAP Business One Guided Answer - Mismatch Between Inventory Audit Report Balance and Inventory G/L Account Balance.
