If GR quantity is more than/less than Invoiced quantity, there will be balance in GR/IR clearing account. If no more invoicing or Goods receipt expected, then the difference has to go to Material Stock account, either debit or credit.

If there is a difference in price, then it will go to Price difference account

The above applies to material being valued at Standard Price

With materials with moving average price, the difference is posted to the material stock account when the GR quantity is greater than or equal to the invoice quantity.

If the GR quantity is smaller than the invoice quantity, the difference posting is divided:

Difference * stock quantity/IR quantity to the material stock account

Difference * (IR quantity IR stock quantity)/IR quantity to a price difference account

Hope this is useful
