• Perpetual inventory system

If the entity is using the perpetual inventory system the calculation is based on the moving- average of the number of units and their respective costs after each purchase. This is called the moving-average method.

Example: Using the same information as above but assuming that Spencer Company uses the perpetual inventory system the calculation of cost of goods sold and ending inventory is much different. Each time the company purchases merchandise the new moving weighted average has to be recalculated. This average cost is then used to calculate the cost of goods sold on any subsequent sales transactions.
