1. When a company uses FIFO they are less likely to incur old and outdated inventory that can no longer be sold. Accountants have to write off what’s calledobsolete inventory after a certain amount of time goes by and the product is not used or sold. Because FIFO makes sure that the oldest items in stock are used or sold before they are deemed obsolete companies can save money.

2. Inflation happens, actually it’s pretty constantly happening. Let’s say you purchase a batch of dog food in May for \$4,000. Come June when you are going to purchase another batch for your inventory, the prices have risen to over \$6,000. Using FIFO, you would be selling off the batch from May before you sell off the batch from June, right? So now you can sell the batch from May for the current inflated market price which reduces the impact of inflation on the company.

kiya ye thek hy?

Because of the inflation effect the profit will increase after implication of FIFO. The CGS will decrease because of closing inventory having a larger value.

In the years 2014 and 2015 , the prices have fallen because the FIFO method is representing a larger amount than Weighted average method.

I think, the effect in the last two scenarios. i.e. 2014 and 2015 will be vice versa.
