Kale Wilson, an auditor with Sneed CPAs, is performing a review of Platinum Company’s inventory account. Platinum did not have a good year, and top management is under pressure to boost reported income. According to its records, the inventory balance at year-end was $796,290. However, the following information was not considered when determining that amount. Prepare a schedule to determine the correct inventory amount. (If an amount reduces the account balance then enter with a negative sign preceding the number , e.g. -15,000, or parenthesis e.g. (15,000).) Ending inventory-as reported $ 1. Included in the company’s count were goods with a cost of $214,470 that the company is holding on consignment. The goods belong to Superior Corporation. 2. The physical count did not include goods purchased by Platinum with a cost of $30,200 that were shipped FOB destination on December 28 and did not arrive at Platinum’s warehouse until January 3. 3. Included in the inventory account was $22,420 of o±ce supplies that were stored in the warehouse and were to be used by the company’s supervisors and managers during the coming year. 4. The company received an order on December 29 that was boxed and sitting on the loading dock awaiting pick-up on December 31. The shipper picked up the goods on January 1 and delivered them on January 6. The shipping terms were FOB shipping point. The goods had a selling price of $43,040 and a cost of $35,230. The goods were not included in the count because they were sitting on the dock. 5. On December 29, Platinum shipped goods with a selling price of $87,500 and a cost of $53,770 to District Sales Corporation FOB shipping point. The goods arrived on January 3. District Sales had only ordered goods with a selling price of $11,090 and a cost of $8,450. However, a sales manager at Platinum had authorized the shipment and said that if District wanted to ship the goods back next week, it could. 6. Included in the count was $37,010 of goods that were parts for a machine that the company no longer made. Given the high-tech nature of Platinum’s products, it was unlikely that these obsolete parts had any other use. However, management would prefer to keep them on the books at cost, “since that is what we paid for them, after all.” Correct inventory $
