Keeping track of your inventory, the time it takes to sell and the profit made on each product is essential if you want to manage your business effectively.


What counts as inventory?


Inventory is anything you buy to on-sell, including fully-completed items to sell in your store, products that you install in people’s homes or businesses or materials used to manufacture products.


Work equipment, tools or anything else used in your business don’t count. If you have a drop-shipping business where third-party suppliers ship direct to your customers, you don’t have inventory either.

Tracking the movement and value of your inventory is essential for pricing, insurance, accurate tax returns and selling your business.

  • Identify profitable items and true margins
  • Find bulk discounts on popular items
  • Boost marketing by identifying sales trends It all adds up to less waste and better cash flow – which means more money for business-building activities.
