Re: Last purchase price costing method?by
First-In, First-Out (FIFO):
This method assumes that the first unit making its way into inventory is the first sold. For example, let's say that a bakery produces 200 loaves of bread on Monday at a cost of €1 each, and 200 more on Tuesday at €1.25 each. FIFO states that if the bakery sold 200 loaves on Wednesday, the COGS is €1 per loaf (recorded on the income statement) because that was the cost of each of the first loaves in inventory. The €1.25 loaves would be allocated to ending inventory (appears on the balance sheet).
Last-In, First-Out (LIFO):
This method assumes that the last unit making its way into inventory is sold first. The older inventory, therefore, is left over at the end of the accounting period. For the 200 loaves sold on Wednesday, the same bakery would assign €1.25 per loaf to Cost of Goods Sold (COGS), while the remaining €1 loaves would be used to calculate the value of inventory at the end of the period.
What does Last in first out have to do with updating a purchase price on a product?Hi,I do not understand, could you please clarify? I see there is a costing method available if you select it from the config, but it is only Average cost.On Tue, Dec 16, 2014 at 10:26 PM, Mihai FEKETE <Mihai.FEKETE@forbiom.eu> wrote:

Is there default functionality that will update cost price on product every time its purchased/received?
Just curious, if not ill just create it..
