Stock Taking Services

A stitch in time….

Regularly working with your professional, independent stock taker throughout the year will cut down on nasty surprises come the year end. The production of a tailor-made computerised set of reports at the time of audit will help you get up-to-date & current information about the state of your business. These reports for wet stock auditing for example, generated by up-to-date software could include:-

  • opening & closing stock information
  • number of days stock holding
  • sales ratio information
  • overall surplus/deficit information
  • overall yield
  • overall Gross Profit Margin


In many cases the licensed outlet will have a PLU till which can produce a Z2 report for all sales by product. This information is useful to the Client for looking at product sales but for very little else. However, when it is cross-checked against the information produced by the Stock taker’s software any sales annomolies & sales differences can be pinpointed. Thus problem areas can be identified quickly.

These reports will enable your qualified stock taker to advise on different aspects of your business including:-

  • how your business is performing against current trends
  • how your business is performing historically
  • ways of maintaining & improving your Gross Profit Margin
  • identifying any stocking issues
  • pinpoint any pricing issues
  • making marketing & promotions more effective

After cash your most precious commodity will be your stock. Too much stock might cause a cash flow problem; too little stock might cause you to lose sales. Your qualified stock taker can advise you accordingly on looking at your stocking levels.

What does a particular promotion cost?

Good stock auditing will look at the particular cost to a business a particular promotion to ensure that the bottom line of any business is not damaged by a promotion such as Happy Hour! Or ‘Unhappy Hour’ as far as most businesses are concerned. We as a professional stock taker will advise against any promotions which incur costs to a business as identified from our reports. Often ‘soft’ promotions where consideration is given to better customer service, e.g. remembering customers names & their drinks orders can reap rewards.
