How do we know what 100 units are left over at what price? How do we decide what cost to report on balance sheet? Inventory Cost Flow Assumptions GAAP accepted methods 1. FIFO- First-In-First-Out - First goods purchased are assumed to be the first ones sold - FIFO Estimated Inventory (EI) Cost = Most Recent Cost - Physical Flow Cost Flow - 43% of businesses use this method. - Most popular among businesses Ex. Left over 100 units are assumed to be priced at $8.00/unit because lest set bought at that price. The first 400 sold is what was first bought. 100 X $8.00 = $800 Inventory Reported on Balance Sheet

2. LIFO- Last-In-First-Out - LIFO EI = Earliest Purchases - 34% of businesses use this method Ex. We sold all units bought on 10/15, 7/8, and 20 units bought on 3/7. 80 units bought on 3/7 and all 20 units bought on 1/1 are unsold. 80 X $6.00 + 20 X $5.00 = $580 Inventory Reported on Balance Sheet FIFO EI= $800 LIFO EI= $580 When Prices are rising FIFO EI > LIFO EI FIFO NI < LIFO NI (Net Income) Problem with FIFO is that FIFO income tax is > LIFO income tax LIFO income tax is lower because the NI is smaller (IF PRICES ARE DECREASENG THEN THE OPPOSITE IS TRUE) 3. Average Cost - 15% of all businesses use this method - 2 steps

    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.
