IAS 2: Inventory
Inventory is comprised of merchandise inventory, which includes prescription inventory, and is valued at the lower of cost and estimated net realizable value. Cost is determined on the first-in, first-out basis. Cost includes all direct expenditures and other appropriate costs incurred in bringing inventory to its present location and condition. The Company classifies rebates and other consideration received from a vendor as a reduction to the cost of inventory unless the rebate relates to the reimbursement of a selling cost or a payment for services. Net realizable value is the estimated selling price in the ordinary course of business, less the estimated selling expenses.
During the current financial year, the Company recorded $39,943 (2010: $37,884) as an expense for the write-down of inventory as a result of net realizable value being lower than cost in cost of goods sold in the consolidated statements of earnings.
During the financial years ended December 31, 2011 and January 1, 2011, the Company did not reverse any significant inventory write-downs recognized in previous years.
As per the disclosure requirements set forth in IAS 2 the company is required to disclose: * The accounting policies adopted to measure inventories, as well as the cost formula used * The carrying amount in any classifications relevant to the company * The carrying amount of the inventories carried at fair value less costs to sell * Amount of inventories recognized as an expense * The amount of any write downs * The amount of any reversals and the circumstances that led to their reversal * Carrying amount of any inventories pledged as security
