How to use costing method FIFO in ERPinCloud:-

create-purchase-order

Step 2: Check Journal Entry and the amount which is calculated based on the cost price defined in purchase order-1

Cost price= 80 (Defined in purchase order-1)

80*4=320 (4 =number of quantities)

check-journal-entry

Step 3: Check product cost price which remains unchanged

check-product-cost-price

Step 4: Create purchase order-2 of 5 quantities for that product and set different unit price and click on receive product

Step 7: Create Sale order of 7 quantities of that product which has costing method as FIFO and click on deliver

crete-sale-order1

crete-sale-order2

Step 8: Check Journal Entry and the amount which is calculated based on FIFO

Calculation: Purchase Order-1 is created for 4 quantities at a cost price of 80

Purchase Order -2 is created for 5 quantities at a cost price of 110

As Sales order is for 7 quantities, so 4 quantities is charged at cost price of 80 (4*80=320)

And remaining 3 quantities is charged at cost price of 110 (3*110=330)

As costing method is FIFO 4 quantities is charged as per first purchase order cost price and remaining 3 quantities is charged as per second purchase order cost price

As Sales order is for 7 quantities, so 4 quantities is charged at cost price of 80 (4*80=320)

And remaining 3 quantities is charged at cost price of 110 (3*110=330)

As costing method is FIFO 4 quantities is charged as per first purchase order cost price and remaining 3 quantities is charged as per second purchase order cost price

So cost price of product is calculated as (330+320)/7=92.86
