**Standard Price Inventory Valuation**** Method**

**Definition**

Standard inventory valuation method is an approach of determining the monetary value of closing stock which entails use of predetermined price to value issued out inventory.

The predetermined price is anchored on the relevant factors such as the level of demand of raw materials and future changes in prices that is expected to take place. The following illustration clarifies this method of inventory valuation.** **

**Example**

Polite Notice (PN) company ltd provided you with the following inventory details for the month of August 2021

**Required **

Using the above information, determine the monetary value of closing inventory at the end of August under **STANDARD** **PRICE** inventory valuation method.** **

**Solution**

**Explanation of inventory Issuance-STANDARD PRICE inventory valuation Method above**

**Note:** That, total units of inventory before issuance begins was 200 units made up of 1^{st}August 125 units plus 5^{th} August 75 units. Then…

11^{th} August the first 100 units of inventory was issued and was from the 1^{st} August 125 batch of units of inventory received. The balance after that issuance was 25 units of inventory. On 13^{th} August the next issuance of 50 units of inventory was made and was from two batches; first, 25 units were gotten from the 1^{st}August batch of inventory whose balance was 25 units and second, the remaining 25 units was picked from the 5^{th} August batch. On 16^{th} August, received additional inventory of 150 units. Such that the total units of inventory so far were 50+150=200. On 20^{th} August, another issuance of 75 units of inventory was made. So, 50 units were picked from the 5^{th} August batch which had a balance of 50 units. That batch got exhausted. Therefore, the remaining 25 units to be issued was gotten from the 16^{th} August batch where by the balance left was 125 units. Then another additional inventory was received on 25^{th} August of 50 units translating to a total of 175units of inventory. Then the last issuance was 25 units which was picked from the 16^{th} August batch resulting to a balance of 100 units. So, after the last issuance, there was a balance of 150 units (made up of 100 units of 16^{th} August batch plus 50 units of 25^{th}August batch).
