This method is increase the possibility of clerical errors.SAMPLE & TOOLS 1. This method is also useful when transactions arc not too many and price of materials are fairly steady. This method is useful when prices are falling.but in case of rising prices this method is not suitable because the issue price of materials to production will be low . 0 materials received first are utilized first. ['his method is most suitable in times of falling price of materials to jobs or works orders will he high. Disadvantages of FIFO method: . Thus. materials are issued at the purchase price. Under this method.the store ledger clerk will have to go through his record to ascertain the price to be charged. while the cost of replacement of materials will be low . the method recovers the cost price of the materials. materials received first arc issued first. Of utilizing first those materials which arc received first . the units from the first purchase issued next and so on until the units left in the closing stock of materials arc valued at the latest cost of purchases. Closing stock of materials will be valued at the market price as the closing stock under this method would consist of recent purchase of materials.Materials are issued in order of purchases. . Main advantage of FIFO method is that it is simple to understand and easy to operate. .

. LIFO method of pricing issues is suitable materials are issued at the current market prices which arc high . This method is suitable in times of rising prices because material will be issued from the latest consignment at a price which is closely related to the current price levels. this is simple to operate and is useful when transactions are not too many and the prices are fairly steady.e. this method many lead to clerical errors as every time as issue is made. For pricing one requisition more than one price has often to be taken. . Stored ledger clerk will have to go through the record to as certain the price to be charge’.S. . 2) Last in first out method (LIFO) method: The issues under this method are priced in the reverse order of purchase i. till.the issue price does reflect the market price as material are issue from the earliest consignment . comparison between one job and the other job will become difficult because one job started a few minutes after another of the same type many bear are different charged of materials consumed. Like FIFO method. more than one price has often to be adopted. For pricing a single requisition. . . This method is sometimes known as the replacement cost method because materials are issued at the current cost to jobs or work orders except when purchases were made long ago. Like FIFO. This method was first introduced in the U. The stock in hand is valued at price which does not reflect current market price. this method recovers cost from production because actual cost of material is charged to production. When prices rise .therefore the change of production is low because the cost of replacing the material consumed will be higher than the price of issue. .during the Second World War to get the advantages of rising prices Advantages of LIFO Method: ..this method thus helps in showing a lower profit because of increased charged to production during periods of rising prices and lower profit reduces burden of income-tax. Like FIFO. In times of rising prices.. Disadvantages of LIFO Method . .A. the price of the latest available consignment is taken. Like FIFO..

it is proper if the materials arc issued at the average cost of materials in store. 2) Weighted arithmetic average.
