2. It is management policy to hold inventory at the end of each month which is sufficient to
meet sales demand in the next half month, Sales are budgeted to occur evenly during each
Prepare the purchases budget for July, August and September
how to find the opening inventory?June 17, 2020 at 4:39 pm
The sales in July are 100. Since sales are at cost plus 25%, the cost of the sales must be 100/125 x 100 = $80.
The opening inventory for July has to be half of the sales and therefore has a cost of 1/2 x $80 = $40.
It is the same logic for each of the following months.June 18, 2020 at 2:38 am
How about the closing inventory for July? did the question has give?June 18, 2020 at 8:33 am
You repeat the exercise for each month.
So the closing inventory for July (which is the same as the opening inventory for August) is 1/2 x 100/125 x $90 = $36
