Accounting requirements relating to inventories are specified in the IAS 2 Inventories standard. It tells us, among others, what the definition of an inventory is and what should and should not be included in the cost of an inventory at initial recognition. According to the standard subsequent measurement shall be at the lower of net realisable value and cost.
Net realisable value, cost of purchase, cost of conversion, weighted average cost method, FIFO method, standard cost method, so many measurement methods and concepts. This course explains these concepts through practical examples and interim tests to enhance understanding.
This e-learning course is part of an e-learning series designed by PwC Academy Hungary which aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the application of IFRS (IAS) standards to finance and accounting experts who are already familiar with fundamental (local) accounting and reporting processes.
