Breaking down items into saleable parts

Some businesses purchase second-hand items and dismantle them into parts to sell individually.

To record this in AccountRight, you'll record the whole item as a purchase, then create an item for each component, and finally transfer the inventory using Build items.

Example

A company which sells second-hand computer systems and parts has purchased an old Pentium computer. They plan to remove all saleable parts from the computer and sell them individually.

Although this is a nostalgic example, the same approach can be used for any item which can be broken down into saleable parts.
