The closing inventory at cost of a company at 31 January 20X3 amounted to $284,700.
The following items were included at cost in the total:
1 400 coats, which had cost $80 each and normally sold for $150 each. Owing to a defect in
manufacture, they were all sold after the reporting date at 50% of their normal price. Selling
expenses amounted to 5% of the proceeds.
2 800 skirts, which had cost $20 each. These too were found to be defective. Remedial work in
February 20X3 cost $5 per skirt, and selling expenses for the batch totalled $800. They were
sold for $28 each.
What should the inventory value be according to IAS 2 Inventories after considering the above items?
Sir, in book the answer is 281200..
We know original cost and coat cost But I didn’t understand how this calculated:
NRV ( 75 * 95 % )
Can you please explained this to me ??November 22, 2022 at 8:27 am #672033John MoffatKeymaster

5% of proceeds are spent on selling expenses. 100% – 5% = 95%.
Have you watched my free lectures on the valuation of inventory, because I work through a very similar example.
