Channel stuffing

Channel stuffing is an accounting practice where producers of certain consumer goods ship products in large volumes to its distributors so that it can register huge and quick revenues and profits before the accounting period ends. Because some of the goods can be returned to the producer from its distributors due to a surplus, it is usually a misleading accounting method because the returned items are not yet registered on the producer's financial records until after an accounting period is over.
