Yoseff Company uses the LIFO method of inventory valuation. For Year 5, cost of goods sold was \$45,000. Beginning inventory was \$5,000 and ending inventory was \$6,000. If Yoseff had used the FIFO method of inventory valuation, beginning inventory would have been \$8,000 and ending inventory would have been \$11,000. What would Yoseff’s cost of goods sold in Year 5 have been if Yoseff had used FIFO?

LIFO method

Cost of goods sold = \$45,000

Beginning inventory = \$5,000

Ending inventory = \$6,000

Purchases = Cost of goods sold + Ending inventory - Beginning inventory

= 45,000 + 6,000 - 5,000

= \$46,000

FIFO Method

Purchases = \$46,000

Beginning inventory = \$8,000

Ending inventory = \$11,000

Cost of goods sold = Beginning inventory + Purchases - Ending inventory

= 8,000 + 46,000 - 11,000

= \$43,000

Cost of Goods in years 5 if FIFO method is used = \$43,000
