We learned that, if inventory declines in value below its original cost, a company should write down the inventory to market to report the loss in both U.S. GAAP and IFRS and that the IFRS and U.S. defines the market differently. IFRS defines market as net realizable value. U.S. GAAP, on the other hand, defines market as replacement cost subject to the constraints of net realizable value (the ceiling) and net realizable value less a normal markup (the floor). IFRS does not use a ceiling or floor to determine market.
Required: Determine the amount of which Houston Co. should report its inventory on the December 31, 2016 balance sheet under (a) U.S. GAAP and (2) IFRS.
