Years Established

Years of experience

Our team

Keverne Samuel formed A ABC Stock Assessment in 1999. Keverne has 25 years experience in stocktaking and created A ABC Stock Assessment when he saw the need to provide a total solutions package for businesses across a range of industries within the retail, service and government sectors. This included valuations of stock on hand, listings of assets within the business, information and guidance on POS systems tailored to a business, as well as education of staff and management as to the general maintenance of stock within a business.

All of our current staff have been fully trained in all aspects of stocktaking, stock control, asset listings, and stock valuation. We only employ professionals within the field of Accounting / Auditing. We have never used short term staff from temp agencies or the like, as we endure to provide a high level of professionalism to our clients that can only be gained from qualified personnel. Subsequently, our expert team are able to complete stocktakes in a fraction of the time that employees within a business are capable of.Our interests are for our clients. That means providing a stocktake that is efficient, accurate, and has little or no impact on normal trade. This high standard and level of professionalism lead to smoother transactions for Sales of Businesses, and also provides peace of mind for all parties involved.

How much does a stocktake cost?

Our fees are based on several factors, the main one being the Total Stock at Value, which means at cost price NOT retail. Depending on how much stock you are carrying at time of sale will help determine the basis of our fees. Each stocktake is different and therefore our fee structure changes according to the type of business and the amount of time involved conducting the stocktake. For an accurate costing please email or call us and we will gladly provide a no obligation free quote.

How much notice is required?

We are constantly expanding and our teams are out conducting stocktakes for an average of 12 hours a day, including weekends. So if you require our services, we would request as much notice as possible. We understand that settlement times change, and generally a settlement date will change due to banks, solicitors, landlords, unsigned documents etc. Our suggestion is to make a tentative booking with the knowledge that the date could change at any time, and if it does, we will do our best to accommodate the sale, which we can generally do.

How long will it take?

Once again, this will depend on the amount of stock and what’s involved in the stocktake. For Example, a take away business generally takes an hour for anywhere up to $8,000.00 stock, whereas a supermarket carrying $350,000.00 stock could take as much as 8 hours. Time factors include: Use by date checking of stock, Physical counting of stock, Invoice checking (when required), Database access for listed items.

What about use by dates?

Date checking is conducted as a routine part of our stocktakes, but is only done as a courtesy offered by us. We are not required by law to do any form of date checking. The onus is placed squarely on the current owner and the new purchaser of the business to ensure, for their customers, that their products have sufficient shelf life. Our date checking is fairly comprehensive regardless, but we are human and cannot guarantee that all expired stock will be removed.
