    Stages of Rectifying Errors
    1. Rectification before preparation of Trial Balance.
    2. Rectification after preparation of Trial Balance.
    3. Rectification after preparation of Final Accounts.

    Notes- 1. In case of rectification of a single sided error, before preparation of Trial Balance, no entry is required is required, just a note called Blank Entry is written.

    Thumbs up Fundamenal of Accounting - Stock valuation.


    Types of Inventories

    1. Raw Materials
    2.Work-in-Progress or Semi-Finished Goods
    3. Finished Goods

    Need of stock valuation

    1. Determination of Income
    2.Ascertainment of Financial Position
    3.Liquid Analysis
    4.Statutory Compliance

    Inventory Record System

    1. Periodic Inventory System-Under this method, stock is ascertained physically. Under this system valuation is done at the end of the period.
    2. Perpetual Inventory System- Under this system valuation of stock is done after each issue and receipt.
    Physical valuation is not done here.

    Difference between periodic inventory system and perpetual inventory system

    Periodic Inventory System
    Perpetual Inventory System
    1. This system is based on physical verification. 1. It is based on book record.
    2. This system does not provide continuous information about stock and cost of sales. 2. 2. This system provides continuous information about stock and cost of sales.
    3. This system determines inventory and considers cost of goods sold as residual value. 3. It directly determines cost of goods sales and balancing figure is taken as closing stock.
    4. Cost of goods sold includes loss of goods as goods not in stock are assumed to be sold. 4. Closing inventory includes loss of goods as all unsold goods are assumed to be in inventory.
    5. Under this method inventory control is not possible. 5. Inventory control can be exercised easily.
    6. It requires closing of business for counting of stock. 6. Stock can be valued without hampering the normal business activities.

    Methods of Stock Valuation

    1. FIFO Method- Under this method, for the purpose of pricing the issues, it is assumed that materials received first are issued first.

    2. LIFO Method- Under this method, for the purpose of pricing the issues, it is assumed that materials received lat are issued first.

    3. Simple average Method- Under this method the rates of purchases represented by stock at the time of issue are added and then divided by the number of such rates to obtain the simple average rate at cost.

    4. Weighted Average Method- Under this method total cost of materials in stock at the time of issue is divided by the total quantity of materials in stock to obtain the weighted average rate.

    5. Periodic Simple Average Method- In this case the rates of purchases during a given period are added and then divided by number of such purchases during that period. Opening stock representing last year’s purchases is not considered.

    6. Periodic Weighted Average Method- In this case, to obtain rate of issues, all purchases during a given period in value (cost) are added and then it is divided by total quantity purchased. Here also opening stock representing last year’s purchases is not considered.

    Note- Under both periodic simple average method and weighted average method all issues are made at a single rate.

    Difference between LIFO and FIFO Method of Pricing

    FIFO Method
    LIFO Method
    1. In this case first receipts are issued first. 1. In this case last receipts are issued first.
    2. In condition of rising prices, FIFO gives greater profit. 2. In condition of falling prices, LIFO gives greater profit.
    3. FIFO puts emphasis on the balance sheet. 3. LIFO puts emphasis on the income statement.

    For B. Com Only-
    Stock Level of Materials

    Maximum Level= Re-order level + Re-order quantity-(Minimum Consumption X Minimum order period)

    Or, = Re-order level + Re-order quantity- Minimum Consumption in Given Period

    Minimum level= Re-order level-( Average Consumption X Average re-order period) or,
    Re-order Level-(Average Consumption Rate X Average Lead Time)

    Re-ordering Level= Maximum Consumption X Maximum re-order period) or,
    Average Consumption X( Minimum Stock for emergency + Avg. Lead Time) or,
    Safety Stock + Lead Time Consumption

    Average Level= Minimum Level + Maximum Level\ 2

    Danger Level= Average Consumption X Lead Time For Emergency Purchases

    Economic Order Quantity= 2AO\C ?

    Number of orders= Annual Consumption\ EOQ ( Order Size)

    Time gap between two consecutive orders= 12 Months or 365 Days\ Number of Orders

    Here ,A= Annual Consumption , O= Ordering Cost , C= Carrying Cost.

    Thumbs up Fundamenal of Accounting - Consignment.


    Consignment- It is a form of the business under which the entrepreneur appoints an agent to sell the goods. In consideration the agent gets commission.

    Consignor: He is the owner of the goods. He consigns the goods to the agent to sell on his behalf.

    Consignee: He is the agent appointed by the consignor to sell the goods on his behalf. He gets commission on sales at a specified rate.

    Ordinary commission: This commission is paid in each case. It is generally paid on sale price. But sometime it is paid on invoice price (I.P.).

    Del-credre commission: This commission is paid when consignee agrees to bear bad debts. In this case bad debt is the loss of the consignee not of the consignor. So bad debt is not shown in the Consignment A\C. But consignee shows it in his book by passing the following entry-

    Commission Earned A\C - Dr.
    To Bad Debt A\C

    Special commission:

    i. Based on profit -Sometime consignee is paid some portion of profit as commission.
    ii. Over-riding commission -Some time consignee gets extra commission if he sells the good over and above I.P.

    Types of losses

    Normal Loss- No accounting treatment is required for it . It is just deducted (in quantity) from total quantity to
    calculate the value of consignment stock (closing stock).It occurs regularly in the business.

    Abnormal Loss-This is the loss which occurs accidentally and which does not occur regularly.

    Types of Expenses
    Recurring Expenses- Expenses which are incurred for more than once on any particular lot of goods are called recurring expenses. In other words, expenses incurred after the goods arrive at the consignee’s godown are called recurring expenses. Ex. Godown rent, selling expenses, advertisement, carriage outward, salesmen’s commission etc.

    Non-recurring Expenses- Expenses which are incurred only once on any particular lot of goods, are called nonrecurring expenses. In other words, expenses incurred till the goods arrive at the consignee’s godown. Ex. Loading expenses, unloading expenses, handling expenses, carriage to godown, dock dues, custom duty and clearing charges etc.

    Note- Accounting treatment for it has been discussed later.
