A Step-by-Step Guide to Performing Inventory Reconciliation

Inventory reconciliation is performed by comparing the physical inventory counts to the inventory records in the accounting system. This process helps to identify discrepancies in inventory levels and evaluate the accuracy of the accounting records. To perform inventory reconciliation, the following steps are typically taken:

Step 1

Physical inventory count

A physical count of inventory is performed to determine the actual quantities of products on hand.

Step 2

Compare to records

The physical count is then compared to the inventory records in the accounting system to identify any discrepancies.

Step 3

Investigate discrepancies

If there are any discrepancies, further investigation is required to determine the cause of the discrepancy, such as theft, miscounting, or errors in the accounting records.

Step 4

Adjust records

Once the cause of the discrepancy is determined, adjustments are made to the accounting records to reflect the actual inventory levels.

Step 5


Finally, the inventory records are reconciled with the physical inventory count, and the process is repeated periodically to ensure ongoing accuracy.

Step 6

Reconcile Sales Tax Accounts

Once all adjustments have been made, the sales tax accounts can be reconciled. This involves comparing the adjusted sales tax liability in the company's financial records with the amount of sales tax remitted to the tax authorities. If the two amounts are now in agreement, the sales tax accounts are considered reconciled.

Step 7

Document the Reconciliation

The final step is to document the sales tax reconciliation process. This includes preparing a reconciliation report that summarizes the process, identifies any discrepancies, and documents any adjustments made to the company's financial records.
