Chapter 06 - Inventories and Cost of SalesProblem 6-6AA(Concluded)Part 2If Botch, Corp. had been experiencing declining costs in the acquisition of inventory, we would observe the opposite results in our comparisons. Specifically, LIFO would have resulted in a higher ending inventory, lower cost of goods sold, higher gross profit, and higher net income. FIFO would have resulted in a lower ending inventory, higher cost of goods sold, lower gross profit, and lower net income.Part 3Advantages:LIFO: Given the cost trends in the problem, the advantage of using LIFO is that the lower net income will result in a lower tax obligation (tax deferral). Also, LIFO is likely to better match current costs against revenues. FIFO: The advantage of using FIFO is that the inventory figure reported on the balance sheet is likely similar to the current replacement cost.Disadvantages:LIFO: Given the cost trends in the problem, the disadvantage of using LIFO is that the inventory figure, which is also reported on the income statement, will likely be understated in comparison to the current replacement costs. FIFO: The disadvantage of using FIFO is that it will produce a greater tax obligation for the current period as a result of a higher reported net income.6-38
