Chapter 8, Problem 6P, Retail Inventory Method Turner Corporation uses the retail inventory method. The following

Required:

Compute the cost of the ending inventory under each of the following cost flow assumptions (round the cost-to-retail ratio to 3 decimal places):

  1. 1. FIFO
  2. 2. average cost
  3. 3. LIFO
  4. 4. lower of cost or market (based on average cost)

1.

To determine

Calculate the cost of ending inventory by the retail method using FIFO cost flow.

Explanation

Retail inventory method: It takes into account all the retail amounts that is, the current selling prices. Under this method, the goods available for sale, at retail is deducted from the sales, at retail to determine the ending inventory, at retail.

Conventional Retail Method: Conventional retail method refers to the estimation of the lower of average cost or market by eliminating the markdowns from the calculation of the cost-to-retail percentage.

In this case, the cost-to-retail percentage will be determined by dividing the goods available for sale at cost by the goods available for at retail (excluding markdowns). Thus, the conventional retail method will always result in lower estimation of ending inventory when the markdowns exist.

FIFO: Under this inventory method, the units that are purchased first are sold first. Thus, it starts from the selling of the beginning inventory, followed by the units purchased in a chronological order of their purchases took place during a particular period.

Calculate the cost of ending inventory by the retail method using FIFO cost flow.
