Are you drowning in excess and obsolete inventory, struggling to keep your ledgers balanced and your shelves clear? Look no further!
Our Excess and Obsolete Inventory Policy is your comprehensive guide to navigating the complexities of managing shrinkage, obsolescence, and surplus inventory within your organization’s allowance accounts.
Generally, companies record allowance reserves to account for inventory losses arising from shrinkage, obsolescence, and excess inventory. Regardless of the decrease in value, be it due to damage, deterioration, obsolescence, price fluctuations, or future demand changes, the difference should be recognized through an income charge in the corresponding period.
