What is a Stock Audit?

A stock audit is performed to physically verify the stock of inventory and report on the variance if any against the book stock. Necessary action and adjustment of the book stock are undertaken based on the stock audit. Furthermore, a stock audit involves verification of the status of stocks including reporting on non-saleable, non-moving and slow-moving stocks.

How to Perform Stock Audits?

Stock audits across all points of sale or storage can be verified in a pre-scheduled manner or arbitrarily. Barcoded SKUs are verified using scanners while others are manually counted. Depending on the business needs, the audit could be conducted for 100% of the stocks, for select segments, or for test check basis.
