Inventory Aging Report


In this article, you will learn about Sellercloud’s Inventory Aging Report. This report provides an analysis of the estimated age of the inventory in stock based on previous receivings of particular items. The accounting principle used in making these calculations is referred to as FIFO (first-in, first-out), where when an item is sold, the oldest inventory items (earliest purchased items) are considered as sold first.

It is important to note that in this report:

  • Shadow inventory is grouped under the Parent SKU.
  • Inventory in Dropship and Interim Warehouses is excluded from the calculation.

For example, let’s say that Product A has a current quantity of 7 which was received on two different dates:

  1. The most recent receive date was 15 days ago with a received quantity of 5.
  2. The previous receive date was 45 days ago, also with a received quantity of 5.
  3. The report will show that Product A has a quantity of 5 with an inventory age between 0-30 and a quantity of 2 with an age of 30-60
  4. Finally, it will provide an Average Inventory Age based on the calculation of the sum total receiving of the day divided by the quantity in stock. The calculation is (5*15(most recent receive date))+(2*45(earlier receive date))/7 =23.57
