    i entered additional costs so that they can increase my cost of stock items. but this also increases the ledger amount of the Seller. For example, I purchased from Mr.Supplier for Rs.100/-. When I entered additional cost of Rs.10 then Mr. Supplier's ledger shows that I have to pay him Rs.110/- but Rs. 10 is my company's expense. How to resolve this problem?
