Writing an Equipment Inventory
The following are general guidelines in making an equipment inventory:
- Know the exact equipment that you own. It must include enough information like location, value, and capabilities.
- Determine how, by who, when, and where an equipment is used.
- Determining where an equipment could have most use is important as relocating equipment from an area where it is less used to where it is most needed can boost efficiency in operation
- Knowing which equipment to invest in helps rather than wasteful expenditure of equipment sitting in storage.
- Always maintain a preventive maintenance schedule for equipment. Prevention is always better and sometimes cheaper than cure.
- Get to the bottom of issues involving constant repair and resolve it from the source.

What Is the Purpose of an Equipment Inventory?
For most companies and business, an equipment inventory helps or produces the following:
- Increased efficiency – Having knowledge of the exact equipment that you own equates to information where each equipment is needed and what operations need which equipment. Equipment sitting in storage can now be used to where it needs to be thus releasing equally important storage space.
- Taxation and accounting – In computation of taxes, an inventory of actual assets is needed to compute for the taxes with the ending sales in a period. Depreciation in equipment also result in the lowering of taxes for a business.
- Organization – Conducting an equipment inventory helps organize and sets the equipment in their proper place with the correct labels.
- Lessen full audit schedule – Conducting frequent small audits help in lessening the times where an actual full audit would be required since information would be up to date and accurate.
