Project 2

Part 1 Gross Profit Method

Horton, Inc. suffered an inventory loss due to a flood. The following information is available to you.

Beginning inventory \$100,000

Net purchase 400,000

Sales 400,000

Inventory salvaged from flood 50,000

Instructions

Use the gross profit method for estimating inventory to determine the loss due to the flood, assuming (a) gross profit is 25% of sales, and (b) gross profit is 25% of the cost of goods sold.

a) Solution

Beginning inventory \$100,000

Purchase 400,000

Goods available 500,000

Sales 400,000

Less : Gross profit (25%) 100,000

Sales 300,000

Approximate inventory 200,000

b) Solution

400,000 * 25 %= 100,000 (gross profit on sales)

400,000 – 100,000= 300,000 (cost of goods sold)

500,000 – 300,000 = 200,000 (ending inventory)
