5Learning Objective 1Account for inventory transactions.
6Inventory Accounting Systems Periodic systems do not keep a continuous record of inventory on hand.Perpetual systems maintain a running record to show the inventory on hand at all times.
7Recording Transactions in the Perpetual System Purchase price of the inventory $600,000+ Freight-in 4,000– Purchase returns – 25,000– Purchase allowances – 5,000– Purchase discounts – 14,000= Net purchases of inventory $560,000

13Learning Objective 2Analyze the various inventory methods.
14What Goes Into Inventory Cost? Sum of all costs incurred to bring asset to its intended useInventory costing methods:Specific unit costWeighted-average costFirst-in, first-out (FIFO)Last-in, first-out (LIFO)
15Illustrative Data Beginning inventory (10 units @ $10) $ 100 No. 1 (25 $14 per unit) $350No. 2 (25 $18 per unit) 450Total purchasesCost of goods available for sale $ 900Ending inventory: unitsCost of goods sold: units
16Specific Unit Cost 5 Units @ $10 Cost of Goods Sold $ 50 350 180 $580 $ 50350180$58025 $1410 $18$900 – $580 = $320
17Weighted-Average $900 total cost ÷ 60 units = $15/unit Ending inventory = 20 × $15 = $300Cost of goods sold = 40 × $15 = $600
18First-In, First-Out Ending Inventory Cost: 60 units Less units sold 40 Ending inventory 20 units20 units × $18 per unit = $360
19First-In, First-Out 10 Units @ $10 Cost of Goods Sold $100 350 90 $540
20Last-In, First-Out Ending Inventory Cost: 60 units Less units sold 40 Ending inventory 20 units10 units × 10 = $10010 units × 14 = 140Total $240
21Last-In, First-Out 25 Units @ $18 Cost of Goods Sold $450 210 $660
26Comparison of Inventory Methods FIFO produces inventory profits during periods of inflationLIFO allows managers to manipulate net incomeLIFO liquidation
27Consistency Principle Use the same accounting methods and procedures from one period to the nextMay change inventory methods, but must disclose the effects of the change on net income
28Disclosure PrincipleFinancial statements should report enough information to enable an outsider to make knowledgeable decisions about the company.
29ConservatismThe least favorable figures are presented in the financial statements.
30Lower-of-Cost-or-Market Rule Report inventory at the lower of its historical cost or market (replacement) valueIf the replacement cost falls below its historical cost, write down the value of the inventory
31Learning Objective 4Use the gross profit percentage and inventory turnover to evaluate business.
32Using the Financial Statements for Decision Making Gross profit percentage= Gross profit÷ Net sales revenueInventory turnover= Cost of goods sold÷ Average inventory
33Learning Objective 5Estimate inventory by the gross profit method.
34Estimating InventoryGross profit method - based on computation of cost-of-goods-soldBeginning inventory+ Purchases= Cost of goods available for sale– Ending inventory= Cost of goods sold- Cost of goods sold= Ending inventory
35Objective 6Show how inventory errors affect cost of goods sold and income.
36Effects of Inventory Errors An error in the ending inventory creates errors for cost of goods sold and gross profit.The current year’s ending inventory is next year’s beginning inventory.
37Reporting Inventory Transactions on the Statement of Cash Flows Inventory transactions are operating activitiesThe purchase of inventory requires a cash payment, and the sale a cash receipt
