Compute the following for Les Fleurs during 20X2: (Do not convert the figures to US dollars.)

Net sales revenue
Cost of goods sold
Gross profit

  • Intro to Accounting -

    Net sales revenue = total generated from the companies products.

    To calculate COGS:

    You need to find the Goods available for sale (Beginning Inventory + Cost of Goods Purchased or Purchases)

    After finding that

    Goods available for sale - Ending Inventory = COGS


    Gross Profit = Net Sales - COGS

  • Intro to Accounting -

    Oh wait. Since you have Freight In

    COGS = Beginning Inventory + Net purchases + Freight In - Ending Inventory

    Net purchases = Purchases - Purchase returns and allowances - purchase

  • Intro to Accounting -

    NET SALES REVENUE:
    Inventory Sales…………………. 400,000
    Less: Sales discounts…………. 4,000
    Less: Sales returns…………. 8,000

    Net Sales Revenue = 388,000



    COGS = Opening Inventory + Net Purchases - Ending Inventory

    COGS Calculation:

    December 31, 20X1….. 20,000
    Add Net Purchases 248,000
    Less December 31, 20X2….. 30,000
    TOTAL COGS = 238,000

    Net Purchases is calculated as:
    Purchases………………... E250,000
    Less: Purchase returns…….. 7,000
    Less: Purchase discounts…. 3,000
    Add: Freight In……………… E8,000
    Net Purchases = 248,000


    GROSS PROFIT = 388,000 – 238,000 = 150,000
