Part 11.WhiIe preparing year end financials, FIFO Method shall be used as a method to account theinventory mainly due to its wider acceptance and recognition. This method is justifiable due toits advantages which are as follows:1.In industries where expiry date of the product plays a major role, earlier batches ofinventory are cleared first due to its limited period usage. FIFO is the most appropriatemethod to such industries which takes into consideration the time frame.2.It becomes easier to maintain accounts under FIFO where ERP systems are notimplemented due to its high costs.Major Disadvantage:1.It does not give the real time cost of the products in industries which are traded ascommodities.2.Activities to perform at year end to correctly account for year end inventory:1.Physical Stock Taking of the Inventory is the classic way for correct accounting.2.Goods Receipt Register can be vouched for any receipts not having been accounted.3.Purchase Orders Summary can be checked to check the closed Purchase Orders.3.Inventory is the asset of the business. It is the one which runs the business. It gives us the trueposition at a given point of time. For ex, when inventory is slow moving, it is a matter of worryas it might convert to dead stock. A manufacturer or trader cannot run/sustain in business withouthaving inventory.Page 1 of 13
