3 Intermediate Accounting Questions

Question 1

Company Z had the following transactions in its first year of operations:

  • On January 15, purchased 5,000 units of inventory for $20 each
  • On March 1, purchased 10,000 units of inventory for $22 each
  • On March 30, sold 7,000 units of inventory for $48 each
  • On June 20, purchased 9,000 units of inventory for $25 each
  • On August 10, sold 12,000 units of inventory for $50 each
  • On September 3, sold 1,000 units of inventory $49 each

Company Z records transactions using a perpetual system. Calculate the cost of goods sold and ending inventory using (1) average cost, (2) FIFO, and (3) LIFO.

Company Z asks you to advise them on which inventory method to use. What method would you choose if the company wants to take out a loan from a bank in the near future that requires the company to meet a large threshold for its current assets’ value? What method would you choose if the company has a near-term investment opportunity that requires more cash on hand? Explain your answers.

Question 2

Company X has the following information:

  • Inventory at end-of-year prices of $1,300,000 (2018 – base year), $1,450,000 (2019), and $1,350,000 (2020)
  • The price index is 105 in 2019 and 107 in 2020

Use the dollar-value LIFO method to calculate ending inventory for 2019 and 2020.

Question 3

Company ABC divides its inventory into three different groups. Group 1 has 350 units and the price per unit is $12. Group 2 has 200 units and the price per unit is $20. Group 3 has 900 units and the price per unit is $2.5. The purchase price for all units was $9,000. Determine the cost per unit for each group. Use the relative sales value method.
