Stock Company Management is the control of the items that your business intends to sell. Stock Company Management involves monitoring, storing, and buying inventory. It could also include predicting the demand, reducing costs and having the appropriate amount of each product in the storehouse to be able to meet sales forecasts.

The process of keeping track of inventory and knowing when to order more is vital to ensure cash flow, however the ideal method will differ based on the size of your business and the kind of stock that you have. Small businesses often keep records by hand, using spreadsheet formulas as well as points to reorder, while larger companies might use more sophisticated enterprise resource planning (ERP) software.

Costs associated with holding stock could include purchase costs, storage charges, labour to pack, pick and store the stock before it is sold, and spoilage or waste. Reduce structural costs by implementing a sound inventory control system, which includes regular stocktakes so that you can track the status of your inventory at any time. A stocktake compares the data of inventory purchased and sold with the physical inventory in your hand to identify stolen, lost damaged or soiled items which you can deduct as an expense, or offset against the value of the goods sold to make accounting sense.

Having the right amounts of inventory can help you determine profitable prices, however, too much will tie up funds and increase the cost of storage and disposal. A crucial measure is stock turnover which is the number of times stock is purchased and sold during a given time. This helps ensure that there is never more stocks available than sales, thus avoiding the need to pay for and store deadstock.
