inventory on hand


The amount of stock present in a retail outlet and ready to be distributed to interested consumers. If a retail business does not actually want to count all of its inventory again, the quantity of inventory on hand can be computed by taking the amount of stock previously observed and then including any subsequent stock addition and subtracting sales or other stock disposals.
