What have you tried so far? Have you looked at units of measure? Its exactly what you want

In the inventory part we had the buy price as a whole and then the sell price as single but this caused a few issues as when the item was invoiced out and inventory assets in P & L. I then set the inventory item up as two separate items with a defining part numbers. This works ok but as the items are billed in we then have to do a inventory adjustment changing the first item to nil and the second item to 10 (if it is a pack of ten). I have been given the task to see if there is an easier way.

Thank you Kevin, I have just had a look at units of measure and you may be correct. Not sure how to set this up yet, will look further.
Reckon Accounts is not very powerful in BOM or in "Kitting " setup unlike Fishbowl and other 3rd party apps, however, I  think Graham Boast whos a Reckon Partner , will be able to help with some options.
