Case Study

Ramesh developed original specification of the product and founded Ramesh Manufacturing Ltd. In 2007 the firm manufactured 980 nos at the average price of Rs.900/- each. In 2008 due to continuous price rise of inputs, he raised his prices at the average of 12%, as he knew he could sell plant’s full capacity of 980 nos per year. In spite of price rise for the product, which sold for over Rs.1000/- for the first time. Ramesh was surprised to learn in late 2008 (as may be seen from the financial statements) that Ramesh Manufacturing Ltd show the decline in earnings and still worse, decline in cash flow.

His accountant has bought the following:

i) We are following FIFO system for purpose of issues.
ii) Costs are going up faster than 12% and they will go up further in 2009.
iii) We are not setting aside enough to replace the machinery; we need to set aside Rs.1,65,000/- not Rs.1,50,000/- so as to be able to buy new machinery.
iv) It is still not late to switch to the LIFO for 2008. This will reduce closing inventory to Rs.3,30,000/- and raise cost of goods sold

Required:
