QB Issue Resolution:

Pay the expense using a current asset account you create called something like wip

then open the original bill that stocked the item purchased
add a portion of the expense to each items total cost
change the expense part of the purchase, list the wip account, enter the amount of the expense as a negative number

the bill should now be the same amount as it started out, save and click through any warnings about payments being applied

QB will redo the purchase average cost for the item as of the bill date, and any sales of that item since that date will also be adjusted for the new item cost – you will see “Bill” in the COGS detail report
