(a) Determine the ending inventory under the conventional retail method for the furniture department of Mayron Department Stores from the following data. Cost Retail Inventory, Jan. 1 $ 149,000 $ 283,500 Purchases 1,400,000 2,160,000 Freight-in 70,000 Markups, net 92,000 Markdowns, net 48,000 Sales revenue 2,175,000 (b) If the results of a physical inventory indicated an inventory at retail of $295,000, what inferences would you draw?
(a) Ending inventory at cost equals $199,531.25.
(b) Ending inventory at retail is $312,500, whereas, per the physical count, it is $295,000. This indicates that inventory at retail is worth $17,500, and inventory at a cost worth $11,173.75 is not accounted for.
Ending inventory at retail is calculated as follows:
Add: Markups, net
Less: Markdowns, net
Less: Sales revenue
Ending inventory, at retail
The ratio of cost to selling price is calculated as follows:
The ending inventory at cost is calculated as follows:
Not accounted inventory at retail is calculated as follows:
Not accounted inventory at cost is calculated as follows:

Accounting, Analysis, and Principles Englehart Company sells two types of pumps. One is large and is for commercial use. The other is smaller and is used in residential swimming pools. The following inventory data is available for the month of March. Units Price per Unit Total Residential Pumps Inventory at Feb. 28: 200 $ 400 $ 80,000 Purchases: March 10 500 $ 450 $225,000 March 20 400 $ 475 $190,000 March 30 300 $ 500 $150,000 Sales: March 15 500 $ 540 $270,000 March 25 400 $ 570 $228,000 Inventory at March 31: 500 Commercial Pumps Inventory at Feb. 28: 600 $ 800 $480,000 Purchases: March 3 600 $ 900 $540,000 March 12 300 $ 950 $285,000 March 21 500 $1,000 $500,000 Sales: March 18 900 $1,080 $972,000 March 29 600 $1,140 $684,000 Inventory at March 31: 500 In addition to the above information, due to a downturn in the economy that has hit Englehart’s commercial customers especially hard, Englehart expects commercial pump prices from March 31 onward to be considerably different (and lower) than at the beginning of and during March. Englehart has developed the following additional information. Commercial Pumps Residential Pumps Net realizable value (per unit) $900 $580 The normal profit margin is 16.67% of cost. Englehart uses the FIFO accounting method. Accounting (a) Determine the dollar amount that Englehart should report on its March 31 balance sheet for inventory. Assume Englehart applies lower-of-cost-or-net realizable value at the individual product level. (b) Repeat part (a) but assume Englehart applies lower-of-cost-or-net realizable value at the major categories level. Englehart places both commercial and residential pumps into the same (and only) category. Analysis Which of the two approaches above (individual product level or major categories) for applying LCNRV do you think gives the financial statement reader better information? Principles Assume that during April, the net realizable value of commercial pumps rebounds to $1,050. (a) Briefly describe how Englehart will report in its April financial statements the inventory remaining from March 31. (b) Briefly describe the conceptual trade-offs inherent in the accounting in part (a).
Starfish Company (a company using GAAP and the LIFO inventory method) is considering changing to IFRS and the FIFO inventory method. How would a comparison of these methods affect Starfish’s financials? (a) During a period of inflation, working capital would decrease when IFRS and the FIFO inventory method are used as compared to GAAP and LIFO. (b) During a period of inflation, the taxes will decrease when IFRS and the FIFO inventory method are used as compared to GAAP and LIFO. During a period of inflation, net income would be greater if IFRS and the FIFO inventory method are used as compared to GAAP and LIFO. (d) During a period of inflation, the current ratio would decrease when IFRS and the FIFO inventory method are used as compared to GAAP and LIFO.

Inventory, May 1 $ 160,000 Purchases (gross) 640,000 Freight-in 30,000 Sales revenue 1,000,000 Sales returns 70,000 Purchase discounts 12,000 Instructions (a) Compute the estimated inventory at May 31, assuming that the gross profit is 30% of sales. (b) Compute the estimated inventory at May 31, assuming that the gross profit is 30% of cost.
