Negative stocks are necessary, for example, when goods issues are entered for organizational reasons prior to the corresponding goods receipts and the material is already physically located in the warehouse.

Once the goods receipts have been posted, the book inventory balance must again correspond to the physical stock, that is, the book inventory balance may no longer be negative.Negative stocks are always a sign that physical movements must be be entered in the system at a later stage.

To configure negative stock u use SPRO- MM-Inventory Management- Goods Issue/Transfer posting/ Allow negative stock.

Here you specify whether negative stocks are allowed for unrestricted-use stock in the valuation area, in the plant, and in the storage location.

Also The indicator for negative stocks should be maintained in the storage data of the material master record.
