ORIE 3150 Homework #4 1. LIFO inventory costing is not allowed in the United Kingdom (UK). Thus, all companies based there use FIFO. You are examining the financial statements from Leicester Manufacturing, a UK firm. Inventory replenishment costs have varied somewhat over the past two years. Which will be more accurate, the Inventory account on the balance sheet, or the Cost of Goods Sold figure on the income statement? Explain briefly. With the First In, First Out (FIFO) inventory costing method, the most recently acquired merchandise is in the Inventory account. As such, the Inventory account on the balance sheet will be more accurate. Conversely, the Cost of Goods Sold account will show items acquired some time ago, and thus may be out of date and inaccurate. 2. The Boswell Boat Supply Company has three inventory items on hand. Boswell has found that the items would need to be refurbished before they could be sold, and the replacement cost of each of these items has changed. Boswell Company may need to adjust the inventory cost of the items. Find the correct cost for each item, and provide the journal entry needed (if any) to make the adjustment in their financial records.
