Negative inventory occurs when there is a discrepancy between the amount of inventory recorded in the system and the actual quantity on hand. This can happen due to several reasons, such as inaccurate record-keeping or unexpected sales. When inventory goes negative, it can cause several issues for the business, including:
When inventory goes negative, it can lead to backorders, delayed shipments, and unfulfilled orders, which can result in decreased customer satisfaction and loss of business.
Negative inventory can also result in increased costs, as the business may have to expedite shipping or production to meet the demand, which can be costly.
Negative inventory can also lead to inaccurate financial statements, as the cost of goods sold (COGS) and inventory valuation may be incorrect, leading to potential tax issues and audit problems
