Budgeto currently uses the JUST-IN-TIME (JIT) method when managing inventory.
This means that the inventory is bought and consumed during the same month.


EXAMPLE:

To understand how to use the Inventory menu, let's take a concrete example:

  • You sell 10 units of Product A in October;
  • The selling price of Product A is $100;
  • The cost of Product A is $50 per unit;
  • Your provider's payment term is 30 days (1 month).



Here's how the transaction will be counted in Budgeto:

  • $500 inventory will be purchased and consumed automatically by Budgeto in October;
  • The impact on the inventory will be $ 0 because there is an increase of the inventory of $500 at the time of the purchase and a decrease of the inventory of $500 during the consumption
    ($500 - $500 = $0);
  • Your 30-day payment term will result in a $500 disbursement in November in your cash budget.

Manually change your inventory planning (PLANNING MANUAL PURCHASES)


To change your inventory planning within the Budgeto app, follow these steps; 


1- Access the main SALES menu from the LEFT SIDE MENU;


 2- Click on the "Inventory" button near the right side of the screen;





 



3- Click on the BLUE ARROW next to the product you wish to modify the inventory planning of;


4- Here you will be able to see the current INVENTORY LEVEL each month for every year of your budget, and you will be able to enter the MANUAL VARIATIONS of inventory purchases or sales for each available month;

 
EXAMPLE:

Continuation of previous example above:

  • You sell 10 units of Product A in October;
  • The selling price of Product A is $100;
  • The cost of Product A is $50 per unit;
  • Your provider's payment term is 30 days (1 month).


Now, consider that you have to buy your inventory 6 months in advance. Here's how to handle this situation in the Inventory menu:


In the PLANNING OF MANUAL PURCHASING schedule, you must enter a positive manual inventory change of $500 in April. Yes, you sell your product in October but you must buy it 6 months in advance, in April. You will then see your "Inventory Level" balance increase to $500 as of April;

  • Then, you must enter a negative $500 manual inventory change in October to reduce your inventory level to $0 (as you sold these products in October);
  • For the payment term, you must enter the same payment term as for your product. In this case, 30 days

Here's how the transaction will be counted in Budgeto:

  • With a 30-day payment term, Budgeto will disburse $500 inventory 30 days after the April manual positive inventory change. The supplier payment will be made in May. If you had chosen 60 days, the payment would have been made in June;
  • In the same vein, the system will cash $500 in November for the manual change of negative inventory of October. This cashing will cancel the disbursement of $500 automatically generated by Budgeto at the time of sale, thus the impact on the cash budget for the month 11 will be $0
