Review the Annual Report that you chose for the Week 3 Discussion topic #1 and based on what you've read in the text and in the Becker materials, explain how inventory is presented on the balance sheet and what further information you found in the footnote disclosures about the inventory method and "Impairment of Inventory", if any.;This section lists options that can be used to view responses.;Inventoriable Costs/Cost-Flow Assumptions (graded);We read about the Perpetual and the Periodic Inventory System. Regardless of which system is used, under both, we need to assign dollar amounts to the Ending Inventory and Cost of Goods Sold so that we can trace how costs flow through the system. Start by identifying what is included in inventory and then discuss how each item might be treated differently in the Perpetual vs. the Periodic Inventory System.;week 7;Inventories?LCM (graded);The lower-of-cost-or-market (LCM) approach was developed to avoid reporting inventory at an amount greater than the benefits it can provide. The LCM approach records losses in the period the value of the inventory drops below its cost instead of later in the period that the goods are ultimately sold. Is this a conservative or an aggressive approach? What does GAAP say about LCM?;Inventory Errors (graded);It is discovered in 2013 that ending inventory from 2011 is understated.
