Goods In Transit Sometimes purchased merchandise remains in transit at the end of a fiscal period. Ownership of the merchandise is determined by one of two methods: ▫F.O.B. shipping point ▫F.O.B. destination
F.O.B. Shipping Point Ownership transfers to the purchaser when the supplier delivers the goods to a common carrier, who acts as an agent to the company The merchandise is to be recorded as a purchase when the common carrier receives the items.
F.O.B. Destination Ownership is transferred to the purchaser when the common carrier delivers the merchandise to the company. The merchandise is to be recorded as a purchase when it is received from the common carrier.
Consigned Good Under a consignment shipment, one company (consignor) ships merchandise to another company (consignee). The consignee accepts the goods without any liability, except for due care and reasonable protection from damage or loss. When the consignee sells the goods, it returns the revenue to the consignor minus a selling commission and expenses incurred.
Consigned Goods (continued) The consignee makes NO entry for the consigned goods as they do not retain ownership The consignor continues to include the goods in their inventory account. They may show inventory out on consignment in a separate account if the amount is significant.
