The December 31, 2011, inventory of Tog Company, based on a physical count, was determined to be $450,000. Included in that count was a shipment of goods that cost $50,000 received from a supplier at the end of the month. The purchase was recorded and paid for in 2012. Another supplier shipment costing $20,000 was correctly recorded as a purchase in 2011. However, the merchandise, shipped FOB shipping point, was not received until 2012 and was incorrectly omitted from the physical count. A third purchase, shipped from a supplier FOB shipping point on December 28, 2011, did not arrive until January 3, 2012. The merchandise, which cost $80,000, was not included in the physical count and the purchase has not yet been recorded.

The company uses a periodic inventory system.
