Hi all.

AM doing my costing CBA pretty soon and am dreading it. I am finding it really hard to remember all the formulas and to understand alot of it. How did everyone who has already done this find it? Am really struggling with the FIFO LIFO and AVCO, does anyone have any tips on how to get around this?

    Practice practice practice :D

    If you want to mail me with any specifics that you are struggling with I'll see if I can help you like before.

    Take care.

    Its simple as long as you carefully work out the answer.

    Stock bought;

    1 May 1 @ £8
    2 May 1 @ £10
    3 May 1 @ £12

    FIFO - first in first out - the first you'd take is the £8 item leaving £22 of stock.

    LIFO - last in first out - you'd take the £12 item first leaving £18 in stock

    AVCO - average cost - you'd take out £10 leaving £20 in stock
