COGA COGA Ending Inventory COGS BI Purchases COGA COGA COGS ending inventory Periotic System where you do inventory at the end of the accounting period Smaller companies Perpetual System used with a lot of different items Like walmart or public this is an continually updated inventory system so every time someone checks out the inventory changes you still occasionally have to do a physical count because of inventory shrinkage Stealing things going bad ext Two Formulas one question on each Inventory Turnover Cost of Good Sold Average Inventory Average Number of Days to Sell 365 Inventory turnover ratio When does title transfer FOB Destination title doesn t transfer to it arrives at destination When it is in transit it is owner by the seller and they pay the shipping FOB Shipping Point as soon as the goods are shipped title transfer from the seller to the buyer so when it is in transit from seller to buy it belongs to buyer Buyer pays shipping cost QUESTION SPECIFIC IDENTIFICATION METHOD when do you use the speci c identi cation method It is only used in a company that has very few items to sell Low number of items and custom Example a car dealershiponly a few different types of car on lot at a time and homebuilder only a few homes working on at a time Grocery store would never use this they have so many items The specific identification method individually identifies and records the cost of each item sold as Cost of Goods Sold This method requires accountants to keep track of the purchase cost of each item Know Beginning Inventory Purchases COGA COGA Ending Inventory COGS Chapter 7 I 11 questions Goals of Inventory Management maintain suf cient quantity ensure inventory quality minimize the cost 1 Which of the following is not a goal of inventory management Calculations for cost of good sold FIFO rst in rst out LIFO last in rst out Weighted Average avg price per unit is used You are calculating DOLLARS of ending inventory the units of ending inventory are going to be the same under all three methods Gross Pro t Sales Revenueunits sold times selling price COGS Which of the three methods would give you the most net income With in ation FIFO rst in rst out means the cheapest goods that when in rst go out rst This makes COGS smaller and your net income bigger Which of the three would give you the lest income With in ation LIFO gives you the least Because the most recent things you bought are the most expensive and go out rst Periotic System whenever we make purchases this is every journal entry for periodic Debit Purchases Credit Accounts Payable Perpetual System whenever we make purchases every journal entry this is because we are constantly debiting inventory after every entry Debit Inventory Credit Accounts payable Two Questions on Inventory Errors If your ending inventory is overstated what is the effect on COGS net income and current assets COGS is too small understated Net Income is too big overstated Current assets is inventory so if inventory is overstated so is current assets Consignment Inventory refers to goods a company is holding on behalf of the goods owner Typically this arises when a company is willing to sell the goods for the owner for a fee but does not want to take ownership of the good in the event the goods are dif cult to sell Consignment inventory goes on the balance sheet of the person who owns it not the company holding the inventory q EXAM QUESTION You have rising prices which method would you get a higher net income FIFO because your cost of goods sold is made up of your older cost which are smaller cause of in ation which makes your cost of good sold smaller
