Analysis of Inventory

Difficulty: Advanced


Inventory Accounting Policy

Inventories are stated at average cost, subject to the lower of cost or net realizable value. Cost includes materials, labor, and manufacturing overhead related to the purchase and production of inventories. Net realizable value is the estimated selling price less estimated costs of completion, disposal, and transportation. Microsoft regularly reviews inventory quantities on hand, future purchase commitments with the suppliers, and the estimated utility of the inventory. If the review indicates a reduction in utility below carrying value, Microsoft reduces the inventory to a new cost basis through a charge to cost of revenue.
