Every business accounts for its stocks or otherwise inventory not only for ordering purposes but also to ascertain the total assets in relevance to any financial statement or in updating balance sheets. Inventory turnover determines the implications of overstocking and stock shortages and its effect in the business.
An inventory list features the current stocks in possession or in the premises of the business. The list includes every considered asset in the business including office equipment and machinery. Examples of inventory lists can be seen on the page to further provide information regarding an inventory list.

What Is the Purpose of a Store Inventory?
The store inventory or any inventory done to a business is for these purposes:
- The immediate and future strategic goals of a company. An inventory result usually provides information if a business is over stocking or short stocking. Implications for both are then studied in relation to immediate actions that are applicable and other further action plans.
- Aids in forecasting sales of products or items. The numbers that result can be equated to total sales. Fast and slow moving items can be identified and therefore be prioritized accordingly.
- Brings out operational issues relating to product or material requirements. There may be times wherein a certain batch may not be able to run based on the lack of material, which leads to the ordering and procurement of materials. Affected departments are then provided action plans and must coordinate in order to address the issue.
