David’s Entertainment uses the perpetual inventory system and the First-in, First-out costing method.  Transportation-in and purchase discounts should be added to the Inventory Control Sheet, but since this will complicate the computation of the First-in, First-out costing method, please ignore this step in the process.  They also use the Allowance Method for bad debt.


The Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable Subsidiary Ledgers along with the Inventory Control Sheet should be updated as each transaction affects them (daily).

TV A:  $3,500
