Course Description

As the largest or second-largest item on the balance sheet, and a significant item on the income statement (cost of goods sold), accounting for inventory is a high importance. 

IAS 2 has changed how companies account for inventories on their financial statements. It covers accounting for inventories. It applies to all inventories except financial instruments and biological assets. IAS 2 requires the accountant to measure the fair value of inventory by choosing among several alternative methods.  But just exactly how do you do it? This session will provide you with easy-to-follow guidelines that will ensure that you are able to comply with IAS 2.

A primary issue in accounting for inventories is the amount of cost to be recognized as an asset and carried forward until the related revenues are recognized. Guidance on the determination of cost and its subsequent recognition as an expense, including any write-down to net realizable value as on the cost formulas that are used to assign costs to inventories are provided.

  • Inventory costing methods under IAS 2
