Inventory valuation

A manufacturing company consists of a set of raw materials which are the core part of the production process, and some products remain work in progress for the completion of activities.

  • Finished goods:  the goods which are completely ready for sale in the markets and are taxable in nature.

Cost of goods sold recognition

Cost of goods sold is one of the highest expenses that a business organisation suffers. It is mathematically calculated by using the formula opening stock plus purchases less closing stock. The matching principle can be used for this recognition. It must be considered as the foremost offsetting expense. It occurs prior to selling and administrative expenses and to be considered earlier. The factors which influence the cost of goods sold are:

  • Fluctuating purchase price of raw materials 
  • Varying labour costs based on geographical locations
  • Product mix 
  • Methods of overhead allocation 
  • Cost layering methods like FIFO and LIFO
