• Inventory Balance \$2000 (purchased) - \$1200 (sales) - \$300 (returns) = \$500

c) Absence of a purchases account is due to purchases, purchase returns and allowances, sales and sales returns are recognized in the inventory account balance. Perpetual inventory systems show all changes in inventory in the “inventory” account. Purchase accounts are not used in the perpetual inventory system. This is to keep the inventory balance current at all times.

4. Inventory valuation methods: computations and concepts. Wave Riders Surfboard Company began business on January 1 of the current year. Purchases of surfboards were as follows: 1/3: 100 boards @ \$125
3/17: 50 boards @ \$130
5/9: 246 boards @140
7/3: 400 boards @ \$150
10/23: 74 boards @ \$160

Wave Riders sold 710 boards at an average price of \$250 per board. The company uses a periodic inventory system.
