B. Cash flow considerations would relate to the choice of an inventory method because of income
taxes levied on a corporation. In times of rising prices, LIFO would produce a lower net income and
taxable income than the other methods. Therefore, less cash would be required to pay the taxes.

107. A company provided the following footnote in its most recent annual report:
During the current and prior year, the company reduced certain inventory quantities that were
valued at lower LIFO costs prevailing in prior years. The effect of these physical reductions was to
increase after tax earnings this year by $90 million, $.30 per share, and $98 million, or $.327 per
share last year.
1. Explain why the reduction in inventory quantity increased after tax earnings for this company.
2. If the company had been using FIFO costing, would the reductions in inventory quantity during
the two years have increased after tax earnings? Explain.
1. The reduction of the physical level of inventory forced the release of older costs assigned to those
units from the balance sheet to the income statement once they were sold. Obviously the company
had been in a period of inflation and these older costs attached to the inventory units were far below
the current inventory replacement costs.
2. The reductions in inventory would not have increased after tax earnings because the costs that
would have been released from the balance sheet for the units sold would have been reflecting current
costs and not older, lower costs as they were under LIFO.
