Can I create a permanent non-stock item on this system?

Basically each time I want to order some non-stock items (packaging loose fill, office supplies, stickers etc) I have two options. The first is to look up the code, price and order quantites outside of the MRP and manually enter that information in a purchase order under the temporary non stock line.
The second option is to make a component for it, in which I can save all the details and order/add to BOMs as normal, but then I would have to remember to manually book it out once it has been booked in. Otherwise it will just contine to grow throwing off our stock valuations.

Ideally I want to find a third option, where I can save it as a component but not have the stock quantity ever change or show up on shortages etc. It was something you can do on SAGE and although I realise this is a more basic system I was hoping there was some box I can tick to mark it as non-stock to achieve this. Is that possible or does it not exist on this system?

Yes you can. Set the Type to MISC.
From the online user guide:

MISC (Miscellaneous item) - You can use this Type for items such as 'Labor' that doesn't physically exist in your inventory but which still has a cost associated with it. For example a MISC item can appear on a BOM with a quantity and a cost affecting the total build cost. But when the work order is processed these MISC items are not physically taken out of inventory. Their OnHand quantity can remain at zero.
