Inventory discrepancies

Stocks of goods are taken regularly. In the evaluation of an in­ventory, discrepancies are regularly seen (minus / surplus) between the quantities shown in the books up­dating and the result of the count.

If considerable discrepancies result in the evaluation of the in­ventory, establishment of the causes of the damage should not be waived. These establishments are possible in con­nection with a warehouse survey. In addition, measures can be drawn up in order to counteract the origination of discrepancies and to keep deficits as low as possible.
