Where should we keep our church or business inventory?
There should be two copies (original and working copy) of your inventory stored at separate
locations. The master or original copy should be stored in a safety
(fire-proof) deposit box or somewhere where it could not unexpectedly get destroyed in some way. The working copy on your church or business computer hard drive may be kept at the church
with deletions or additions made as necessary.
How often should the inventory be updated?
Both copies of your inventory should be updated at least once a year.
There are several different types of church or business inventory templates or forms free
on the previous page. Just pick out the form that you need along with these
instructions and get started.
Preparing an inventory of church contents is clearly one of the best
ways to obtain better value from your insurance coverage. The contents
of your property have great accumulated value as personal property. In
the event that your inventory is lost, stolen or destroyed, an inventory
helps to validate the existence of items and the cost to replace them.
Questions will arise such as:
- Do you remember how many folding tables were stored in the closet next to kitchen dining area?
- There was a couple of oriental rugs in the foyer, do have any idea what they would be worth?
- How many books and cds were in the library and what was their value?
These are just a few questions out of many that will arise in the unexpected event of your inventory loss.
- Transferring your physical inventory sheet data into a database or digital spreadsheet provides a third point of safekeeping.
- Adding new items to the inventory sheet as they come in will
ensure that their acquisition date and initial value are properly
- Only allow one organized designee to be in charge of inventory to prevent any confusion or double entry.
