### Replies to This Discussion

Can somebody please explain this GDB in simplest possible words....

yar sbr rakho bs baqi gdb,s kr k iska bhi kuch krty hain

kafi sabr hogaya, ab kaam ki bari he.......

Inventory is one of the most important figures on the balance sheet. The inventory level lets you know how efficient management is with shareholder capital and, in some cases, see how confident they are in the company's future sales.

FIFO Method: in this method things that are purchase first must be sell first

Weighted Average Method: in this method all items are sell on average base for example if we purchase some item at 10 Rs per unit and after that we purchase same thing at 5 Rs per unit but we sale both thing on the average rate per unit not 10 Rs or 5 Rs per unit

Dear Students Don’t wait for solution post your problems here and discuss ... after discussion a perfect solution will come in a result. So, Start it now, replies here give your comments according to your knowledge and understandings....

Is anyone out there???? kiya hua gdb post nhe krna kya.....please discuss your ideas...

I'm sharing some idea for the gdb which I have attempted so far:

In the first question I think we are only suppose to discuss and give relevant reasons that company k profits pr year 2002, 2003 aur 2004 pr ky effect hoga as it has changed the valuation method from fifo to wam...Theoretically speaking, men ny hr saal k liay values ko consideration men rkhty huay likha hy k fifo men profits zyada hoty hen aur wam men average values use ki jati hen...prices of leather increase hony ki whja sy cost of goods sold brhy gi, lekin fifo men profits zyada aur wam men kam hongy.....

Am I right?????

Aur second kuch is tarah samajh aya hy....

s.p:

= 0.25*60,000= Rs.15,000 (60,000 is the opening inventory of 2004 for wam)

=75,000(60,000+15,000)

costs on rework= Rs.1500

value of damaged inventory is 1/3 * 60,000= Rs. 20,000

the value of damaged inventory to be reported in balance sheet would be:

75,000-20,000-1500= Rs.53,500

kya esa hi kuch hy....

pls correct me if I am wrong somewhere and share your ideas as well.........

Regards....

samra sis damaged inventory k lie closing inventory use hogi?

scenario men dia hy k 2004 men 1/3rd inventory damage hui hy......selling price ki bat hui he...to phir opening inventory use hogi na.....

closing inventory to woh hy na jo sales k baad bachi he....
