Adjusting Materials Ledger Cards and Accounts to Conform to Inventory Accounts – Inventory Valuation


Adjusting Materials Ledger Cards and Accounts to Conform to Inventory Accounts – Inventory Valuation

When the inventory count differs from the balance on the materials ledger card, the ledger card is adjusted to conform to the actual count.

if the ledger card balance shows more materials units than the inventory card, and entry is made in the issued section; and the balance section is reduced to equal the verified account. In case the materials ledger card balance is less than the physical count, the quantity differences may be entered in the received section or may be entered in red in the issued section with the balance section being increased to agree with the actual count.

In addition to the correction on the materials ledger card, the materials account must be adjusted for the increase or decrease. If the inventory count is less than that shown on the materials ledger card, the following journal entry should be recorded:

Factory Overhead control

xxxx

     Dr
Materials
