Does Your Company Require an Inventory Audit?

Make An Enquiry

Some factors that determine your company requires an Inventory audit are:

1. The volume of stock

If the stock of raw materials, finished goods, or other assets cannot be counted and verified by a single person counting by hand, you need an inventory audit procedure.

2. The type of goods

Suppose the type of goods volume is required to be verified by law. According to the IAS 2, inventory must be measured at its Net Realisable Value.

3. Speculation of phantom inventory.

More than once, when you have required goods or raw material based on the stock count in books but have not found it in the physical inventory, it is called phantom stock. You may face challenges such as loss of time or money to arrange the stock from elsewhere. Several reasons, such as theft and data entry and accounting errors, can cause phantom inventory and is one of the most important aspects that should be included under any inventory audit procedure.

4. If the goods are placed at a third-party warehousing

Some companies require inventory audit in Dubai because their stocks are stored in third-party warehouses within Dubai or other emirates.

5. You have an inventory management process.

An inventory management audit process is incomplete without a proper internal or external inventory audit.
