Hi,

Can someone distinguish between Accrued Wages and Wages Owing, providing which report that they will be required to be reported in!

Thankyou

Pretty sure they are the same. Both represent an obligation of a firm to transfer an economic resource (cash) to an outside entity (employees) at some future date. It is therefore classified as a current Liability on the Balance sheet.

Hi !

A business uses FIFO to manage its inventory of clocks, and their current balance is:
2 Clocks with a cost price of 45 each-------was purchased first by the business
12 Clocks with a cost price of 50 each

On the 7th of Jan, a customer purchases 4 clocks, and in order to fulfil the rules of FIFO, the customer receives the 2 Clocks worth the $45 each and 2 clocks worth $50 each

Two days later, the customer makes a sales return of one of the clocks (but the info doesn't specify which clock was returned)
SO my question is, is there a specific rule that determines which clock is recorded as the sales return in the inventory card?

Thankyou!

The Rule is Last out, first in or LOFI, where the last inventory to go out according to FIFO is the first inventory to be returned

HELLO,

Could anyone please explain to me the difference between how both the period and accrual basis assumption are concerned with recognising revenue and expenses for a particular period of time? Hope this isn't a dumb question :(

THANKYOU

Hi, I'm curious to know what level of accounting knowledge would people expect in first year BCom at Monash or Melbourne Uni? I'm asking because I have just recently dropped VCE accounting 3/4 but I know it's a compulsory subject for commerce at uni.

I know it's not a prereq but would someone who had done accounting 3/4 (or even 1/2) be in a much better position than someone who hadn't?

Also, are there overlaps in content between vce and uni accounting, or anything that doesn't apply? Thank you!

Does anyone have experience with completing accounting 1&2 or 3&4 through virtual school victoria? Was the program well run? What is the general structure of doing a subject through distance? Sorry for all the questions!!

I did units 1 and 2 through vsv and it's well run and well structured! The only thing is that you have to be motivated, and you have to stay motivated throughout the entire year. If you fall behind by one or two weeks, that can really set you back if you're not quick to catch up! Otherwise, if you're motivated and determined, it can be really good!

ahhh rip I already dropped it :'(
Nothing against vsv tho or how they run the subject but I just didn't enjoy the content overall, and I thought the workload was a bit too much.

Hello, I have a query regarding Unit 1/2 statement of receipts and payments.
I've been given this question where I have to create a statement of R & P (that's all that's required). I've already recorded the payment for the supplies the owner bought during the period (worth $4000).

However the question also states as additional information that the owner has used up some supplies (worth $2000) during the period and believes that it should be recorded as an expense. I understand that this would be true in an income statement (please correct me if I'm wrong) but would that make any changes to my supplies listed as $4000 in the statement of R & P?

Thank you in advance for the help!
