I just realised that the Delivery Expenses to Customers is actually a CARRIAGE OUT and should have been used to calculate Cost of Sales. I however put it in the Expenses section of the P&L... AM I GONNA FAIL:crying:???

    Doesn't carriage *inwards* only class as cost of sales?

    Very sure it does... ya know just the same as delievery expenses to your premises count towards cost of a fixed asset?

    Outwards is an expense. 100%.

    Bugger! I included it in the Cost of Sales ..... just checked my notes and they class it as a normal expense.

    just checked on my proforma P & L in the back of my osborne book and Carriage outwards is listed as an overhead or expense.

    Carriage inwards is used to calculate cost of sales.

    Phew I was worrying for a while as I had put it as an expense and was wondering after a few comments.

    These forums are a bit dangerous you come on confident you have only made a few errors then slowly doubt yourself more and more.

    Hi Everyone,

    I have just started the Advanced level a month ago and have just sat my IAC exam...but what I have been taught...

    If you are paying the delivery cost for your customer it is an expenses and it goes as an expense to the P&L.

    If you paying for the delivery cost for the goods you are buying.. You add it up to the purchases so it goes to the cost of sales in P&L..

    I might be wrong....:001_unsure: so correct me anyone if I am..

    but this is what I have been taught :confused1:

    Well if the AAT meant 'delivery expenses on behalf of customers' to mean 'Carriage In', it sure is a very odd way of saying it. Seems like we have to decipher what's in their heads now as well as remember techniques, definitions and formulae.

    Referring to 'our customers' suggests a SALE which could only be Carriage Out (Expense to P&L)

    I took it as an expense as many others did.
