Stock Summary is a statement of the real-time stock-in-hand on a particular day. It is one of the primary inventory statements that gets updated in real-time as and when you record transactions. If you have maintained the inventory in groups, transferred stock for various business needs, sold or purchased stock items, Tally.ERP 9 helps you view all of them using the Stock Summary report. You can view this report in the browser .

Know your stock details : Stock Summary provides information on stock items such as quantity, rate, and opening and closing value of the stock items. You can view the entire stock flow, including goods inward, goods outward, opening stock, and closing stock. Whether it is about stock reordering or stock ageing, you can get the right information about the inventory in your business using this report. You can understand the movement of a particular item day-on-day, month-wise or for any selected period.

Understand sales and purchases of stock : You can view details of the available stock at different locations and make a purchase or sales decision accordingly. A clear view of the purchase and sales order outstanding helps you further decide on the next steps to improve the cash flow in your business.

Know stock-wise profit : When you make business transactions with your vendors, you will need to keep a tab on your profit margins regularly. Understanding the profit value against the sales and purchase value of the items help in maintaining your future transactions. Using the Stock Summary report, you can view the profit made from sales of stock items, individually or per group.

Similar to all other reports in Tally.ERP 9, you can drill-down from the Stock Summary report to view various inventory information as per your business needs.
