Stock clearance

Stock clearance is an activity by a company where ownership of products and materials move on to another legal entity. These products and materials in stock clearance will not form the basis of a companies’ key activities. As such they are often end of line stock, surplus stock, returned stock or bankrupt stock.

A company will often pursue a non-profit making agenda when clearing stock, seeking a wider strategic advantage. This can be in the form of releasing storage space, releasing supervision of materials and equipment, ending technical support for a product. Many companies avoid channel conflict by selling anonymously through specialized stock clearance companies. In doing so they seek preservation of the existing corporate image.

Most companies from time to time end up with surplus goods, liquidated goods and bankrupt stock. This can be a costly problem. Stock Clearance is a process by which companies free up valuable money and space.Reasons Leading to Stock ClearanceCancelled orders or late deliveries Closing Down of businessOverproductionReturnsFrustrated Stock (When importer or exporter decides to abandon the stock and leave it with the shipping company)
