This Portfolio analyzes when inventories must be used, the methods of valuation (e.g., cost, lower of cost or market, etc.), and the methods of determining the flow of inventory costs (e.g., specific identification, FIFO, LIFO). It should be noted that although this Portfolio discusses the valuation of inventories for manufacturers under full absorption costing, these rules were significantly expanded under the Tax Reform Act of 1986 and a full examination of these rules is beyond the scope of this Portfolio.
