First-In, First-Out (FIFO) is used by companies to determine the cost of merchandise sold at a particular given time. A product may have a different coast depending the time of purchase, for example if merchandise is bought in January and in June both at a different price range, the coast of merchandise bough in January is what will be used to determine cost of goods sold (COGS) which with FIFO is assumed the merchandise bought in January is sold first. Vice versa, with Last-In, First-Out (LIFO) the price used to determine COGS would be the price of merchandise bought in June. Which implies that the most recent goods was what went out the door first. Due to lower income taxes, most organizations prefer to use LIFO method. However due to the LIFO conformity rule if taxes are low, so must the net income. (Kimmel, Weygandt, & Kieso, 2019, p. 407). Those businesses that have perishable items (Albertson's), or designer clothing (Michael Kors) are more common to use the FIFO method in order to avoid losing revenue when food items expire before purchase or clothing is out of season. LIFO method is used by businesses of petroleum (Chevron) or lumbar (Lowes's) due to possible increase of cost perhaps because if inflation or as we are learning now 기 7 + 2 12:28 o = x View Discussion A Reply. Jessica Talton 3 hours ago, at 9:13 AM NEW Hi Class, Last in, first out(Lifo) is a method used to account for how inventory has been sold. The costs of the most recent products purchased are the first to be expensed. LIFO is used only in the US and is governed by the generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Two good examples of LIFO would be supermarkets and pharmacies like Wal-Mart. Both would use the LIFO methods because almost every good they stock experiences inflation, but IFRS prohibits LIFO due to potential distortions it may have on a company's profitability and financial statements. First in First out (FIFO) is an accounting method in which assets purchased or acquired first are disposed of first. FIFO assumes that the remaining inventory consists of items purchased last. An example of businesses that use FIFO would be companies that sell perishable products or unites subject to obsolescence, such as food products or designer fashions. Dell, Hot Topic. I would imagine they would use the FIFO method because it's easy to apply, the assumed flow of costs corresponds with the normal physical flow of goods, and the balance sheet amount for the inventory is likely to approximate the current market.
