Can anyone help me understand abit better why when then FIFO Costing method is used that the inventory balance is valued at the most RECENT purchase cost?

Is this because what's left in stock is mostly the most recent purchased items?

    Yeah that's what I thought but I wanted a second opinion, thanks for that.

    What's IAS 2?

    International accounting standard 2 -

    It stipulates how inventories should be accounted.

    From memory you'll start to see accounting standards in level 3.
