Now that we thoroughly understand the difference between LIFO and FIFO ([email protected]\$ %[email protected]!**!?), let's merge those ideas of inventory cost flows with how we record purchases and sales, using perpetual and periodic sales. Under a periodic inventory system, you have a purchases account which is closed at FYE, and ending inventory is calculated at FYE by counting inventory and systematically applying costs to units of ending inventory. First, here are the journal calculations for ending inventory, using the periodic method and the three different cost valuation methods: Sales 2,600 units \$165,000 Beginning Inventory 300 @ \$30 \$ 9,000 Purchases 800 @ \$33 26,400 1,000 @ \$36 36,000 1,200 @ \$39 46,800 Goods Available For Sale 3,300 \$118,200 PERIODIC AVERAGE COST Goods Available For Sale 3,300 \$118,200 Ending Inventory 700 @ \$35.82 <25,074> Cost of Goods Sold \$93,126 Gross Margin \$71,874 PERIODIC FIFO METHOD Goods Available For Sale 3,300 \$118,200 Ending Inventory 700 @ \$39 <27,300> Cost of Goods Sold \$90,900 Gross Margin \$74,100 PERIODIC LIFO METHOD Goods Available For Sale 3,300 \$118,200 Ending Inventory 300 @ \$30

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
