It is vital to understand the variation between Inventories and Fixed Assets in QuickBooks and as well as the track to have an accurate amount on the financial statements at tax time. Before you look into the differences between them, let’s first look into why both are important for your business.

Why inventory and fixed assets are significant?

Managing inventory is important to increase business profit. For any company making use of inventories in sales, production is the chief revenue source. Having a lot of inventories for a long time can be hazardous because the products may get spoilt, damaged when it is stored and not sold off, or become outdated.

Nevertheless, having very little inventories, the products may not be enough for sale in case there is demand in the market. This can put your business to the risk of losing sales as well as the market share.

The fixed assets hold a limited life, always in depreciation on how the value of the commercial vehicle purchase get devalued over time because of wear and tear. The equipment that is used to maintain the business, such as Maintenance on computers and printers, is treated as the fixed asset. However, some things such as consumables or stationery can be treated as inventory for its swift movement.

How inventory differs from fixed assets?

Predominantly, to get the most out of inventories and fixed assets, it is important to understand how they differ from each other:

·        Fixed assets are the properties owned by the business and used to generate income. In accounting, fixed assets are presented in the balance sheet on a long-term section, classified under the headings such as ‘equipment, plant, and property’. You can record the fixed assets at the net book value which is the original cost, without the impairment and accumulated charges.


·        Inventory is the item and product used for creating it. In general, they are classified into four types:


·        The raw materials and resources for manufacturing

·        Work in processing

·        Finished Products

·        Merchandise procured from suppliers

The inventory is recorded as the Current asset on the balance sheet, at the sum paid to procure it.
