A nifty trick when doing a stocktake in your shop is to update all of your magazine return’s forms beforehand. Then make sure that you get the total value of the magazines due for return. That way you don’t have to count the number of titles in the form waiting to be returned while doing the stocktake.

Now your total figure for the magazines can be added on to the stocktake total for magazines stock to give you your stock-on-hand value.

This tip should work on any newsagency system.
