    Inventory, January 1 5,000 @ $9.00 = $45,000

    Purchases: June 18 4,500 @ $8.00 = $36,000

    November 8 3,000 @ $7.00 = $21,000

    Sold 10,500 units

    A physical inventory on December 31 shows 2,000 units on hand. W.B. Reindeer sells the units for $12 each. The company has an effective tax rate of 20%. Reindeer uses the periodic inventory method.

    Under FIFO method, December 31 inventory is valued at

    a. $14,000

    2000 units at the latest cost of $7 each = $14,000

    COGS = $102,000 - $14,000 = $88,000

    What is the cost of goods available for sale?

    $102,000

    Under lifo method cost of goods sold is?

    Ending inventory is 2000 units at earliest cost of $9 each = $18,000. COGS = $102,000 - $18,000 = 84,000

    The weighted-average cost per unit is?

    $102,000/12,500 units = $8.16

    If the company uses FIFO what is the gross profit for the period?

    Sales = 10,500 x $12 = $126,000

    less COGS $88,000

    = Gross Profit $38,000

    Tax at 20% = $7,600

    What is the difference in taxes if LIFO rather than FIFO is used?

    Sales $126,000

    less COGS $84,000

    = Gross profit $42,000

    Tax at 20% = $8,400, so tax is $800 higher than if FIFO is used.
