Cost of Sales

AccountEdge uses the Weighted Average Cost method to calculate the cost of sales for an item.

Total Item Value divided by Total Item Quantity On Hand = Weighted Average Cost

((number of items purchased * one_cost) + (number of items purchased * another_cost)) / (total number of items) = Weighted Average Cost

Example:

 Number of Items PurchasedUnit CostExtension
 450$12.75$5737.50
 100$11.95$1195.00
Total550 $6932.50
Average $12.35 
Weighted Average $12.60 

Average = ($12.75 + $11.95) / 2 = $12.35

Weighted Average = ($5737.50 + $1195.00) / 550 = $12.60
