Inventory Verification Service in UAE

"Inventory is money sitting around in another form," - Rhonda Adam

Inventory Verification significantly reduces the company’s inventory loss, assuring management that the inventory presented in the financial statements is reliable. Inventory is the most valuable asset of any business and the most vulnerable to extortion, fraud, waste, and damage.
In accordance with International Accounting Standards (IAS 2), inventory is the asset held for selling in the regular business course, in producing goods for resale and in the form of materials or supplies to be consumed in the process of producing goods or providing services. Per IAS 2, inventory is measured at lower of cost or net realizable value.

What is Stock Taking or Inventory Verification?

Inventory Verification or Stocktaking is the physical examination of a store’s stock or inventory at regular intervals. Inventory Verification or Stocktaking is performed periodically, typically when accounts are closed / financial statements are prepared for external purposes.

Goals of Inventory Verification

  • Confirm the accuracy of store records.
  • Prepare the organization’s final financial statements.
  • Disclose instances of fraud, theft, and stock loss.
  • Identify any flaws in the system of storage and inventory management.

Purpose of Conducting Inventory Verification

The primary objective of inventory verification is to determine the presence of the current stock and its realizable value. Inventory can be an asset with several day-to-day moves, so daily inventory verification is a tedious chore for any organization.
Stock management is essential to accomplishing overall business objectives. Stock management is the process of managing and maintaining an appropriate stock or inventory level in a firm and ensuring that stock is available when needed. Physical stock control describes:
  • Receiving
  • Movement
  • Inventory Storage
  • General Physical Inventory Management

frequently asked questions

Inventory verification is the process of ensuring that an organization's inventory accurately reflects the actual physical stock. This involves auditing an organization's existing records and comparing them to the physical stock in order to identify any discrepancies or inaccuracies.
It depends on various factors, such as the size of your organization, how many different types of products are being stocked, and how often new items arrive or leave your warehouse. Generally speaking; however, most organizations will perform an annual physical count as well as periodic spot checks throughout the year. Conducting regular stock takes helps maintain accurate records and prevents errors from accumulating over time due to incorrect data entry or erroneous assumptions about stock levels.
Effective inventory management requires careful planning, monitoring, and control over all aspects of your supply chain, from sourcing materials through production to delivery and customer service.
