ANALYSIS OF MULTIPLE-CHOICE TYPE QUESTIONS

  1. Question

    (L.O. 1) At December 31, 2014, a physical count of merchandise inventory belonging to Klintworth Corp. showed $500,000 to be on hand. The $500,000 was calculated before any potential necessary adjustments related to the following:

    • Excluded from the $500,000 was $80,000 of goods shipped FOB shipping point by a vendor to Klintworth on December 30, 2014 and received on January 3, 2015.
    • Excluded from the $500,000 was $72,000 of goods shipped FOB destination to Klintworth on December 30, 2014 and received on January 3, 2015.
    • Excluded from the $500,000 was $95,000 of goods shipped FOB destination by Klintworth to a customer on December 28, 2014. The customer received the goods on January 4, 2015.

    The correct amount to report for inventory on Klintworth's balance sheet at December 31, 2014 is:

    1. $572,000.
    2. $595,000.
    3. $675,000.
    4. $747,000.
    Explanation:
    1. The $80,000 should be added to the $500,000 because FOB shipping point means the title transferred when the goods left the seller's dock on December 30, 2014.
    2. The $72,000 is properly excluded from the ending inventory because title did not pass to Klintworth until Klintworth received the goods on January 3, 2015.
    3. The $95,000 should be added to the $500,000 because the goods belong to Klintworth until they are received by the customer (in 2015)
