Item Charges (Landed Costs):

Items Charges, ie. Landed Costs, is available in Dynamics 365 If you want your inventory items to carry costs, such as freight, handling, or insurance, that you incur when purchasing or selling items, you can use the Item Charges features.

For purchase documents, for example, you can use item charges when you receive a separate purchase invoice for these costs, or when the costs are included in the original purchase document for the items.

You can assign item charges to lines in a purchase document that has not been posted as fully invoiced, and you can even assign costs to partially invoiced documents. You can also assign item charges received on a separate invoice to purchase document lines that have already been received or posted.

In addition, your company can set up item charge codes to distinguish between different item charges, and you can define how to post the charges in the general ledger.  Furthermore, Financials can allocate charges to item lines either equally (by line) or by amount (proportional to line amount excl. taxes).  As far as sales are concerned, you can also use the Item Charges feature in sales to assign sales charges to items you’ve sold.
