How to do inventory adjustment without affecting COS? How to account for damaged stock received from the supplier that will be replaced later?

I have received from my supplier some defected items. The full purchase order was recorded as a stock receipt, and I have created a "damaged stock" product and thought of moving the defected items from normal stock to defected products through inventory adjustment. 

Although in my adjustment the Qty of defected items is going positive against the same negative qty for related items credited from good stock, the value of all decreased quantities is affected to COS automatically. 

I just want to adjust qty between good stock and damaged stock. 

What to do? I don't want to account the damaged stock as an expense since it will be replaced by the supplier. Any advice?

Or should I take a completely different approach to record these damaged items?

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
