Best Practices of Inventory Management

Boundless helps you in inventory management and have collated what is called best practices in it.
With these, you can grow your business by leaps and bounds and augment gains.


1. Having an intact inventory control system is best. Two commonly used systems are periodic and perpetual.  Periodic are the ones, which refurbishes ledger periodically i.e. weekly, monthly and quarterly. Perpetual systems are the ones, which updates inventory after each purchase, sale and adjustment. The more frequently it is updated, the easier it is for a business to plan.
2. Have Inventory categorisation. As 80-20 rule applies majorly to inventory, it is better to set priorities straight. (80% sales come from 20% of the products).
3. Have a proper inventory adjuring system. You should know what you need, how much you need and when you need it. This saves one from unwanted circumstances such as inflated inventory costs and longer lead times.
4. Imbrute the inventory system. This standardises the process, saves time and money, increases accuracy and simplifies documentation.
5. Forecast demand as sales may vary due to vicissitude in trends, seasons etc. Thus, demand forecast can help better plan inventory requirements to maintain levels.
6. Perform physical inventory counts. A rubric to control inventory and attune it to the amounts in periodic or perpetual system on the books, physical inventory is normally done once a year normally at the end of the fiscal year. Larger businesses and those preferring periodic or seasonal inventory counts, do it more frequently.
7. Make acclimation as required for goods unsold, obsolete, stolen, damaged or for goods whose market value is lower than the cost of the good.

Ledgers: An Effective Way To Maintain All Business Transactions

Ledgers are books of accounts used for reporting economic transactions measured in monetary terms. Each financial transaction is noted inside a ledger. It depends on the size and structure of the organisation that the number of journal entries vary from hundreds to millions.

General ledger accounts are basically nothing but chart of accounts.

It helps in consolidating journal entries at a single place which are of same nature. Transfer of several journal entries in a single ledger account is termed as posting. For example, 100 entries of journal passed can be posted into a single sales account created. Post that, several sales transactions can be noted in that account date-wise.

Boundless helps you in doing this and maintaining ledgers all the while for your business.
Some important points that relate to ledger are:
1.  Each side of a journal entry is made on the same side of the ledger i.e. debit entry is made on the debit side while credit entry is made on the credit side.
2. Expenses and assets represent debit balance while income and liabilities represent credit balance including capital balance.
3. Debit balance in the statement represents amounts receivable while credit balance in the statement represents amounts payable. While amount receivables are noted in assets, amount payables are represented in liabilities.
4. While credit side represents income earned, debit side represents an organisation's expenses.
5. A cash book's debit balance means cash in hand.
6. Bank book's debit side is balance at bank and bank book's credit balance is bank overdraft.
7. However, real and personal account balances are represented in balance sheet and are carried onto next financial years.

Warehousing And Its Functions

Warehousing

A warehouse is a place used for storing goods. It is nothing but an assumption of a responsibility for storing goods or raw materials. The importance of warehousing is well known when the city hits a drought or flood or any other severe adverse climatic condition prevails. Warehouses allow the timely dispatch of goods, thereby making the situation better.

Functions of warehousing

There are certain functions that a warehouse provides. Boundless provides warehousing services and it is implied that these functions are provided by our warehousing facilities too.
The varied functions include:

1. Storage facilities- Quantities of goods and raw materials which are not required immediately are stored in the warehouse. They are supplied as and when they are needed. Thus, the primary function of a warehouse is to provide storage facilities.

2. Financing- Warehousing acts as a finance source. Many banks and financial institutions provide loans against warehouses. These institutions see goods stored in warehouses by business owners as a security. Banks also provide loans against warehouse receipts.

3. Price stability- Warehousing plays an effective role in stabilising prices of commodities. It is achieved by time utility. When supply is more, a decline in goods prices and when demand is more, the rise in prices are avoided by warehousing.

4. Packing and grading- Additional services provided by warehouses include packing, processing and grading. The goods are packed as per demanded by the owner who sees the market demand and is then distributed.

5. Risk Bearing- Warehouse materials are exposed to many risks such as theft, robbery, fire, exploration, deterioration, etc. Warehouses minimise such risks by entering the contract of bailment. According to the contract, the warehouse keeper is a bailee while the person keeping the goods in the warehouse acts as a bailor. Warehouse keeper is responsible for keeping goods risk-free in warehouses. In the case of damage to goods in the warehouse, the warehouse keeper, the bailee is liable to the owner of the goods, the bailor.

Ledger And Its Kinds

Hence, the total amount of balances in the purchases ledger is the sum the business owes by its credit  suppliers. This sum is also called account payables or formerly known as trade payables which are displayed as a current liability on the balance sheet.

3. Sales Ledger- The book has personal account information of business' credit customers who are also known as debtors. What the customer owes to the business is the balance in his/her account.
