Inventory usually represents a substantial portion of a manufacturing or merchandising company's total assets: on average, it is more than 30% of total current assets for a U.S. company. Inventory management has a significant influence on a company's cash flow and continued viability, and as an asset on the balance sheet, inventory can have a direct impact on reporting the solvency of the company. Thus, determining ideal inventory levels is a balancing act and a key to a healthy and growing business.
This course is designed to address the main accounting principles and concepts applicable to inventory. It shares insights and techniques focused on improving inventory optimization processes, forecasting accuracy, and replenishment strategies. It also discusses common warning signs of inventory fraud, investigation techniques, and some control activities to mitigate risks. This course also identifies the uses of technology to improve inventory management systems. Finally, risk areas, processes, and tips for planning a smooth inventory count are included to help a company prepare for year-end audits.

This course can be used by accounting professionals as a roadmap to what every accountant should know about inventory accounting, reporting, safeguarding, and optimization strategies.
