Late in the fiscal year, one of the division managers realized that making that year’s profit target was not within reach. One of the ways the manager acted upon this information was to order the division to delay all purchases until the next reporting period. On the last day of the fiscal year, the manager discovered that a large purchase of component parts had been recently purchased on account and delivered, even though the parts were not needed for several months. To avoid recording the expense, the manager directed the accounting department to delay recognition of the delivery until the payable was due in the next reporting period. (Noreen, 2014)
What is the proper way to record the parts purchase? (Hint: Think through the journal entries and how each of these accounts are affected : Inventory, Cost of Goods Sold, and Accounts Payable.)
