CPD Course: Managing Remote Teams

IAS 2 Inventory

Whether you’re working in a large multi-national company or in a small business, accurate valuation of your inventory is essential. Inventory can make up a huge proportion of an organisation’s current assets, which means any errors in the inventory valuation can have a material impact on the reported profit

Take Ted Baker, the British luxury clothing retail company, for example. In 2020, around half of its current assets was inventory or £131 million in monetary terms. A lot of inventory to record and keep track of year-on-year! During that same year, Ted Baker was found to have overstated its inventory by £58 million; the correction of which would wipe out an entire year of profit! This impacted the ability of the organisation to pay dividends to shareholders and caused the share price to drop 6%. 

In this course, we’ll provide you with the necessary knowledge and skills to comply with the international standard for inventory valuation, IAS 2. We’ll take you step-by-step through how to measure and record the value of your organisation’s inventory properly, providing you with sought-after skills and knowledge that will be both an asset to your company and to your career as an accountant.
