Inactive stock can be problematic for retailers in their Point of Sale software.  There are reasons for keeping a record of the items but often they can clog systems.  We make managing inaactive items easy by enabling them to be tagged as inactive.  By doing this, the inactive items do not come up in searches for current items.  We have just published a new advice sheet (G41) at our website to guide the proper may to manage inactive stock items in our Point of Sale software.
