Holy Grail or Eternal Grind?

Ah, the majestic world of accounting! Brace yourself as we delve into the enchanted lands of the Perpetual Audit! Now, you’re probably wondering, is this some kind of endless torment designed by the accountant’s guild to punish recalcitrant interns? Fear not, reader, it’s actually quite the opposite!

What is Perpetual Audit? 🧐

Perpetual Audit, also cheekily referred to as Continuous Stocktaking, is a method of auditing where inventory records are continuously updated to reflect real-time transactions.
