• 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

COGS = Opening Inventory + Net Purchases - Ending Inventory

COGS Calculation:

December 31, 20X1….. 20,000

Net Purchases = 248,000

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