LIFO

Economy Term


LIFO stands for Last-In-First-Out, which is a commonly used inventory accounting method. Under this method, the inventory that was acquired most recently is considered to be the first to be sold or used, and the inventory that was acquired earlier is considered to be the last to be sold or used.

LIFO is widely used in the industry because it is a convenient way to value inventory for accounting purposes. It also allows companies to minimize their taxable income by assuming that the most expensive inventory items are sold first, which has the effect of reducing the cost of goods sold and increasing profits.

However, LIFO can have significant drawbacks, such as reducing the accuracy of inventory valuation and making it more difficult to track the true cost of goods sold. Additionally, LIFO can create inventory distortions, which can result in challenges for financial management and auditing.

Despite these drawbacks, LIFO is still widely used in the industry because it can be a useful tool for managing inventory and reducing tax liabilities, particularly for companies with large inventories and high costs of goods sold.
