WORKING OUT YOUR STOCKHOLDING.

It is handy to know what your stockholding is for a number of reasons, the main ones are;

How long it takes you to sell your stock.
If you have items that donít sell very well.
To a certain extent to tell if staff are stealing from you.
To see how much you are wasting.

Before we go into working out your stockholding we want to point out how you can use your stock levels to determine if you are wasting too much or if you have a thief in your employ.

If you havenít sold as much of an item as your stock level suggests then it has either been wasted or someone has nicked it.

If your stock level for an item suddenly drops when you conduct a count then you have too much wastage or somebody has nicked it. (We will go into wastage and dealing with thieves later on in the manual).

Back to calculating your stockholding.

Your stockholding can be worked out using the mathematical ratio

Stockholding = (End Stocks / Total Cost Of Goods Sold) x N

This means the total count you just did divided by how much it cost you to sell, multiplied by the number of days you are calculating, either month or year.

In order for you to do this ratio you would need to have your profit and loss account handy, as this has the cost of goods sold information on it.
