What is an inventory adjustment?

An inventory adjustment is an accounting modification; either decrease or increase from the process of entry or exit of items in a warehouse. Its main purpose is to control the goods and products stored.

It usually occurs as a result of a physical count process of the items in stock.

Whenever an inventory modification is made, we must make clear the reason indicated for which the adjustment was made. You can do this by assigning a code according to the nature of the adjustment you need to make.

To do this, it is very useful to have inventory reports to support the process. If you need help to do it know the options offered by InnovaCommerce TPV

  • When thefts occur and you suffer losses of items that alter their total quantity.
  • When stock movements are made.

Revaluation: Unlike the previous ones, it adjusts the average cost and the total value of the item; without changing the quantity on hand.
