Course Description

Inventory is one of the biggest assets on a manufacturer’s balance sheet. It’s also one of the hardest assets to measure and track. Thousands of transactions flow through the inventory account each year — and many of these journal entries require subjective estimates, such as overhead allocations, write-offs, and valuation adjustments. In addition, many employees have direct daily access to inventory or inventory accounting records, providing an ongoing temptation to steal or cook the books. The retail industry estimates shoplifting losses at roughly $50 billion per year.  Meanwhile, the ACFE estimates that 8% of occupational fraud involves the purchasing or warehousing and custody of inventory.  With a total of $4.5 trillion, or 5% of GDP lost to occupational fraud, this is an additional $360 billion for a total of over $400 billion lost to inventory-related fraud each year.

Inventory fraud can occur during the acquisition, storage, manufacture, or sale of inventory. Unanticipated inventory shortages due to theft, overpayment for inventory due to collusion with a supplier, and over-ordering inventory due to a conflict of interest can have a devastating effect on a business and maybe the difference between success and failure. The examples mentioned above are only a few of the many schemes related to inventory fraud.  It is incumbent on management to protect inventory and to make certain that goods conforming to the entity’s needs are acquired at reasonable prices and are used as intended to avoid a competitive disadvantage.

This CPE webinar on fraud will explore the ways inventory fraud may be committed and both common controls intended to prevent them as well as unconventional controls that may prove more effective when it comes to fraud prevention. In addition, we will also discuss information from which expectations can be derived to develop analytical procedures and management reports useful for detection.

Cases involving inventory losses will be used to highlight various schemes and controls.
