What Is Trading Stock or Inventory?

A trading stock or sample inventory is defined as anything your company or business produces, manufactures, or acquires for the means of carrying on a business such as goods or products on hand for sale in a store.

It is important for companies at the end of the year to determine the trading stock or inventory value in order to assess whether your stock has assessed income or allowed deduction as the result will become your stock’s opening value at the beginning of the coming year.

Trading stocks do not include:

  • Spare parts for repairs and maintenance to manufacturing plant and equipment
  • Raw materials needed for the production of your products
  • Consumables needed in the manufacturing of products, such as rags or cleaning detergents.

Types of Inventory

There exist two types of inventory in a business or company, namely merchandise inventory and manufacturing inventory.

1. Merchandise inventory, which is the final product or goods stored by a trader.

2. Manufacturing inventory, the inventory stock that is stored for the manufacture and sale of products. This is additionally classified further into three types:

  • Raw materials – The items bought by a manufacturer to produce a final product. Examples include that of metal scrap to produce metal ingots or flour to make bread.
  • In-progress products – These items are items that are currently being worked on in the factory or plant. Manufacturers aim to have as low inventory or stock of them since it is considered to be money wasted or frozen
  • Finished products – These are the final products sold to the market.

What Is the Importance of an Inventory?

Having an inventory is important to assess many different issues occurring in your business or company.

An inventory helps determine which items or products in your catalogs are the most sale-able and which ones sell really slow. This can become basis for marketing and sales strategies for a business.

Decision makers can then evaluate which products to produce more of and which ones to make lesser of. This in turn would result in increased revenue and sales for the business.

Inventory results help management determine slow moving items to be placed on sale or discount in order to free up storage and help cash flow.

Results of an inventory help in the planning process of procurement. Raw materials can be ordered and delivered in advance to anticipate which are needed for the production of certain products.
