How to monetise your excess inventory

How to monetise your excess inventory

Excess inventory is a term used to define a surplus of stock that is left sitting in a company’s warehouse.

This problem could occur due to poor forecasting, a complete shift in the manufacturing process, or via a particular component or part becoming outdated or obsolescent. Some root causes of excess can be guarded against but some can’t and as such, it is likely to be a problem that every business will face at some point.


No matter how the issue arises, an excess inventory can pose a significant threat to a businesses’ operating margin. First of all, there is the obvious loss of revenue with associated with a product or part sat on a warehouse shelf. Then there is the additional cost of maintaining and storing the excess, and the initial expenditure linked to the original purchases.

Combined, this makes for bad reading when marked down on a company’s balance sheets.

However, there is a way to recoup some of your lost finances.

There are a number of companies out there who specialise in pouring over excess stock lists and working out a cost-effective way to manage your redundant assets.
