Historical Inventory Reports — to help buying decisions, and ensure data is always on hand when needed, we’ve updated our inventory reports to allow you to look back at stock levels and values from April 1, 2017 onwards. Please note: we recommend keeping any records before April 1, 2017 saved, just in case they’re needed.
