Question

Kachelmeier, CPA, is auditing the financial statements of Big Z Wholesaling, Inc., a continuing audit client, for the year ended January 31, 2013. On January 5, 2013, Kachelmeier observed the tagging and counting of Big Z’s physical inventory and made appropriate test counts. These test counts have been recorded on a computer file. As in prior years, Big Z gave Kachelmeier two computer files. One file represents the perpetual inventory (FIFO) records for the year ended January 31, 2013.
