Alli Co. uses the perpetual inventory system and the last-in first-out costing method. Transportation-in and purchase discounts should be
added to the Inventory Control Sheet but since this will complicate the computation of the Last-in first-out costing method please ignore this step in the
process. They also use the Allowance Method for bad debt.
The Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable Subsidiary Ledgers along with the Inventory Control Sheet should be updated as each transaction
affects them (daily).
