Perpetual Inventory Entries

There are 2 main types of inventory control (Periodic and Perpetual).  In a Periodic Inventory System, changes in inventory levels are only recorded when a physical count is performed.  In a Perpetual Inventory System, the inventory levels are increased with every purchase and decreased with every sale.


This level includes:

  • Increases in inventory with purchases
  • Decreases in inventory with sales
  • On Account purchases and sales
  • Early payment discounts on purchases and sales (Cash Discounts)
