Question and answer
What are the journal entries a merchandising organization would use to record the purchase and subsequent sale of merchandise? How would these transactions differ with a periodic versus a perpetual
inventory system?
Stores that use periodic inventory accounting update their inventory balances periodically. [ [ This inventory method has been used before the introduction of point-of-sales scanners and inventory systems, in which stores found it easier to update their inventory balances periodically instead of trying to account for every item sold on a daily basis. Perpetual inventory accounting, on the
other hand, records EACH sale of merchandise and places an entry in the company's inventory account. The introduction of point-of-sale systems and computers greatly advanced the use of the the perpetual inventory system. This system also immediately reduces sold inventory from stock and adds inventory back to stock when a customer returns merchandise. ] ]
