Inventory management: Inventory management is about knowing what you have in your warehouse and where your stock is located. However, inventory or stock management is integrated with your back-office systems, an inventory management system alone cannot, and will not, effectively optimize your inventory. Nor will it ensure that the inventory asset value of your financial reports matches what is physically in stock, at least not without manual intervention and reconciliation. As a result, we provide the following services to your company, to assist with the inventory management processes.

  • The setting up of the inventory in accounting software including the creation of the SKU numbers (stock keeping unit), the addition of products and SKU in the system, and keying opening inventory quantity and values
  • The determination of the method of calculating inventory
  • Inventory valuation
  • Month- / period-end inventory adjustments
  • The reconciliation between physical inventory and inventory as per the books
  • The integration of the inventory management software with the accounting software, including integration management

Job costing: Job costing is the process of tracking the expenses incurred on a job against the revenue produced by that job. Job costing is an essential tool for those who are pairing a relatively high dollar-volume per customer with a moderately low number of customers such as builders, subcontractors, architects and consultants. We assist these customers with the following activities:

  • The setting up of the jobs
  • Creating estimates for all new jobs
  • Allocating the related costs such as material, labor, and overhead against the relevant job
  • Ensuring that all costs are invoiced to the customer
  • Producing reports with details of costs and revenues by job as well as the estimated versus the actual cost reports
  • Analysis of various reports to look for the variances that can be used to bid more accurately for future jobs
  • Identifying the most- and -least profitable areas of your business by using job costing reports

We perform end-to-end exercises, including the exporting all the critical reports using data templates, including the transaction list, balance sheet, profit and loss account, reconciliation reports, supplier and customer details.
