Question

Weber Limited is trying to determine the value of its ending inventory at February 28, 2014, the company’s year-end. The accountant counted everything that was in the warehouse as of February 28, which resulted in an ending inventory valuation of $48,000. However, she didn’t know how to treat the following transactions so she didn’t record them.
(a) On February 26, Weber shipped to a customer goods costing $800. The goods were shipped FOB shipping point, and the receiving report indicates that the customer received the goods on March 2.
(b) On February 26, Gretel Inc. shipped goods to Weber FOB destination. The invoice price was $350. The receiving report indicates that the goods were received by Weber on March 2.
(c) Weber had $500 of inventory at a customer’s warehouse “on approval.” The customer was going to let Weber know whether it wanted the merchandise by the end of the week, March 4.
(d) Weber also had $400 of inventory on consignment at a Roslyn craft shop.
(e) On February 26, Weber ordered goods costing $750. The goods were shipped FOB shipping point on February 27. Weber received the goods on March 1.
(f) On February 28, Weber packaged goods and had them ready for shipping to a customer FOB destination. The invoice price was $350; the cost of the items was $250. The receiving report indicates that the goods were received by the customer on March 2.
(g) Weber had damaged goods set aside in the warehouse because they are no longer saleable. These goods cost $400 and Weber originally expected to sell these items for $600.

Instructions
For each of the above transactions, specify whether the item in question should be included in ending inventory and, if so, at what amount. For each item that is not included in ending inventory, indicate who owns it and in what account, if any, it should have been recorded.
